Aqua SURAKSHA: Measuring Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDC) and Aquatic diagnostics through Bio-Sensory Network with a special reference to North-East India

Being an agro-economy-based country, unmonitored and uncontrolled usage of agrochemical residues is becoming a threat to the aquatic ecosystem, affecting human health and the national economy. Thus, environmental diagnostic tools for detecting EDCs in water ecosystems are the need of the hour. As an outcome of the Aqua SURAKSHA project, a prototype Bio-sensing system has been developed to detect Endocrine Disrupting chemicals (EDC), such as Organophosphate pesticides (OPs), in inland open water.
