Within this EU project, awarded within the H2020-ICT-2017-1 call, research is done towards the development of a fast and cost-effective immunochemical-based multiplex optical test device (miniaturized integrated photonic sensor) for the simultaneous on-site/on-line/in-line detection of at least 10 parameters in the milk production line. The parameters to measure include antibiotics, bacterial and fungal toxins and quality indicators such as lactoferrin (indicator for the stage of lactation, mastitis and intramammary infection) and casein (important for cheese making properties). The MOLOKO sensor will be engineered to allow process monitoring via mobile devices, such as smartphones and/or tablets, using dedicated software with an interface (app). This app will create a cloud-based information flow consisting of detailed milk-related quality and safety parameters in parallel with the normal milk logistic flow.
