The IBBR research unit located at the Department of Life Sciences of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (DSV) was established to consolidate the long-term fruitful collaboration between the two Institutions and to extend it to the whole CNR (Fig.1).

CNR - IBBR Reggio Emilia URT aims to enhance the scientific exchange between Institutions operating in the agri-food field in the Emilia Romagna Region

CNR - IBBR Reggio Emilia URT relies on well consolidated competences and expertise, and represents an opportunity for the development of new knowledge and tools related to:

  • Study of the Volatiloma, in the agro-food sector
  • Set-up of new nanomaterials acting as a substrate for gas sensors (MOX)
  • Study of new biosensors based on biological substrates
  • Gas Chromatography with Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) for the study of the complexity of the Volatiloma
  • Integrated IoT Data-Base from farm to fork to support traceability and quality in the food chain.

  • Testing nanotechnological sensors for the creation of an array of high-performance and tailored MOX sensors for the specific application in the agri-food sector;
  • Creation of databases, in order to create tailored algorithms and neural networks related to the data acquired by devices equipped with gas sensors on different food matrices (fig.3);
  • IoT Data base will be implemented and applied in real time associated with the archived data of the sensors array in order to predict possible scenario already analyzed
  • Chemical / physical / microbiological analysis with classical and innovative chemical and microbiological techniques for the study of volatiloma in samples of agri-food origin (fig.2).
