Title (EN) DETECTION OF THE PRESENCE OF A MICROBE OR RELATED SUBSTANCE AT A LOCATION
(FR) AMELIORATIONS EN DETECTION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides an indicator for the in-situ detection of the presence of a substance or a microbe at a location. The indicator comprises a layer (8) which is susceptible to degradation by the substance or microbe or a first substance associated with the microbe and a signalling layer (7) which is adapted to produce a detectable signal which indicates the presence of the substance or microbe or a second substance associated with the microbe or a further substance which is located at substantially the same location as the substance or microbe. In use the signalling layer is at least initially protected from contact with the substance or microbe or the second substance associated with the microbe or the further substance which is located at substantially the same location as the substance or microbe by the degradable layer.
(FR)L'invention concerne un indicateur destiné à la détection, <i>in-situ</i>, de la présence d'une substance ou d'un microbe à un endroit précis. L'indicateur comprend une couche (8) susceptible d'être dégradée par la substance, ou par un microbe, ou par une première substance associé au microbe, et une couche de signalisation (7) conçue pour produire un signal détectable indiquant la présence de la substance, ou du microbe, ou d'une seconde substance associée au microbe, ou d'une autre substance se situant sensiblement au même endroit que la substance ou le microbe. A l'usage, la couche de signalisation est au moins initialement protégée du contact avec la substance, ou avec le microbe, ou avec la seconde substance associée au microbe, ou avec l'autre substance située sensiblement au même endroit que la substance ou le microbe, au moyen de la couche dégradable.
