Photonics research at BYTEC


Within the framework of photonics research, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research is funding the "PHOTOX" project for the on-site detection of bacterial toxins in food using chemiluminescence immunoassays.

The overall project is carried out by the 6 partners in the respective subprojects. The subproject "Total device system for cartridge readout" is mainly carried out by BYTEC. The aim is the realization of a device platform for the combination of all single modules for the readout of sample material for the analysis of food for toxins.


The device platform serves to accommodate the cartridge as well as the control and regulation of microfluidics and sensor technology. Linked to this, the device platform should have the option of displaying measurement results.
