A complete innovative and portable, for on-field operation, Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) biosensing system for wine quality monitoring was designed, realized and tested; the system takes advantage of the innovative module SpreetaTM, an integrated transducer designed by Texas Instruments able to recognize the Surface Resonance Phenomena and to represent it through electrical signals. The system, based on an 8 bit microprocessor board, acquires through a 12 bit A/D converter, elaborates and sends to a PC data from the SpreetaTM sensor.A proprietary high-level software calculates the refractive index related to biological solution flowing on the surface sensor and lets to detect suitable substances, custom defined. At the moment this system was finalized to Ochratoxin-A (OTA) detection in wine.
