The world is facing an increasing threat from improvised explosive devices (IEDs) used in terrorist attacks all around the world. Accordingly, the possibility for a fast and straightforward detection is of high importance. Therefore, a highly sensitive and selective handheld sensor system has been developed for the simultaneous detection of various types of explosives in gas-phase, using a combination of fluorescent sensor layers in a Lab-on-a-Chip system.
