Sens4Care is an intelligent network of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) sensors for Surveillance & Infection Control in healthcare facilities. It is an innovative, ground-breaking “Surveillance & Infection Control Systems” targeting MRDOs. S4C will be an active medical device, designed as a modular solution including:

  • A novel sensors network able to detect Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) of the target microorganisms without the use of any intrusive or invasive sampling
  • A modular ICT (client and server) platform for managing the related alerts system (allowing the geo-localization, the time-stamping, and the characterisation of each alert)
  • A (local) server-based interoperability module allowing S4C to store data in an easy-to-use format and integrate with the patient Electronic Health Record including the patient history (previous infections, hospitalizations, etc.)

Sens4Care is part of the AntiSuperBugs project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme



Hospitals and healthcare systems
