The new in-line system runs autonomously, with LEDs to indicate the concentrations of various pathogens. The in-line system also includes a USB interface to allow for system configuration and, by attaching a PC or netbook, logging of sensor data for trend analysis. The biosensor is based on Sporian's patented BioOverseer® sensor architecture which provides specific and sensitive pathogen detection in a rugged, portable package. The sensor has a modular architecture, so that it can utilize other assays to detect additional pathogens.
