What is MIMICS ?

MIMICS is a project which is funded by the European Community. Its objective is to realise a chemical sensor using a molecularly imprinted polymer. The main expected achievements for this sensor are: 
  • a sensitivity to pesticides or herbicides
  • an ability to work either in the gas phase or in the liquid phase
  • a high sensitivity
  • a high specificity similar to antigen / antibodies techniques
  • a better stability than antigen / antibodies sensors
