US Patent Application Filing

On March 15, 2024, U.S. Patent Application No. 18/606,352 titled Electrode for Monitoring Redox in Sentiment named Chelsea Monty-Bromer, an assistant professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering (ChBME), as first inventor. The invention covers a reliable approach to monitoring water quality in freshwater systems to help prevent illness and death for both humans and animals. One key focus of the vertically stacked zero resistance ammetry system will be phosphate monitoring.  Phosphorous is known to be a primary cause of algal blooms but the process is unclear.
