Detection of nuisance odors using odor binding protein sensor

Monday June 24, 2019

This meeting will discuss a research study funded by EREF and being conducted by Florida Atlantic University. This project focuses on the detection of nuisance odors at landfills using a novel odor binding protein sensor. Dealing with nuisance odor complaints is a key issue for solid waste facilities; however, current odor measurement techniques are subjective or largely inaccurate. A new technology is proposed consisting of a biosensor using human odorant binding protein 2A (OBP2A) bonded to a fluorophore. This biosensor technology has the potential to objectively and rapidly measure odor concentrations in real-time, transforming how nuisance odors are monitored and regulated so that the industry can better respond to odor issues.

Attend this project review to learn more about the use of a protein binding sensor to rapidly detect odors, and the ways this sensor can help improve the accuracy of detecting odors at landfills.

Registration is limited. Please note that this is an IN PERSON meeting, not online.
