A COTS-Based Portable System to Conduct Accurate Substance Concentration Measurements

A COTS-Based Portable System to Conduct Accurate Substance Concentration Measurements

Sensors 18(2)

Traditionally, electrochemical procedures aimed at determining substance concentrations have required a costly and cumbersome laboratory environment. Specialized equipment and personnel obtain precise results under complex and time-consuming settings. Innovative electrochemical-based sensors are emerging to alleviate this difficulty. However, they are generally scarce, proprietary hardware and/or software, and focused only on measuring a restricted range of substances. In this paper, we propose a portable, flexible, low-cost system, built from commercial off-the-shelf components and easily controlled, using open-source software. The system is completed with a wireless module, which enables the transmission of measurements to a remote database for their later processing. A well-known PGSTAT100 Autolab device is employed to validate the effectiveness of our proposal. To this end, we select ascorbic acid as the substance under consideration, evaluating the reliability figure and obtaining the calibration curves for both platforms. The final outcomes are shown to be feasible, accurate, and repeatable.
