NVE Corporation has been awarded a one-year $224,000 contract by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop Spintronics-based biosensors to enhance food safety. NVE will cooperate on the research with the University of Minnesota and the University of Florida.

The contract is titled "Real Time Detection for Salmonella", and its goal is to develop sensors capable of faster detection of food-borne pathogens than current techniques while retaining equivalent sensitivity. The sensor could also be extensible to other biomarkers and could be envisioned as a critical point-of-care sensor in the medical industry.
