Investigators
Davies, Jeremy
Institutions
Campden BRI
Start date
2017
End date

Objective
The BirdEase Project aims to develop an acousto–optic sensor technology and integrate this into a real–time measuring instrument capable of being placed on farm to continuously monitor the presence of harmful bacteria. The project will culminate in the demonstration of the technology in a commercial broiler farm environment, identifying the levels of campylobacter present and comparing this to accepted laboratory standard results.
