Research at Notre Dame's PAD initiative

A researcher conducts an experiment through Notre Dame’s College of Science collaborative research program which is working to develop low–tech field tests for chemicals, with numerous applications in developing countries.

The researchers are developing different types of Paper Analytical Devices (PADs) that utilize different indicators that can detect the presence of specific chemicals.

Several chemical tests can be run at one time without any electrical power or instrumentation.
