Through an innovative microfluidic chip technology, DotAr aims to develop an autonomous device that can be placed directly on farms to identify the presence and quantify airborne pathogenic microorganisms in real-time. Besides, our technology aims to reveal which variant species are present and what frequency over the entire pathogen population they occur, generating information of excellent decision value for farmers who could determine when and which fungicides (or other means of protection) to employ in crops (AU)
