Optical (bio)sensing for life science and environmental applications

The Advanced Study Course on Optical Sensors is an ECTS accredited European initiative to establish an education, discussion and contact platform for young researchers working in the rapidly
growing field of optochemical sensors and biosensors. ASCOS is a biennial event held each time in a different European country. To guarantee the most efficient study, ASCOS combines tutorial lectures on basic principles of different optical chem/bio sensor techniques and students work in groups on a number of (bio)analytical problems or sensor systems provided at the start of the course.



Fundamentals of sensing techniques and bioassays

  • Absorbance and fluorescence
  • Chemi- and bio-luminescence
  • IR & Raman methods
  • Fiber-optics and optoelectronic components
  • SPR and other label-free detection techniques
  • DNA- and protein array technology
  • Microfluidics & lab-on-a-chip systems
  • Supramolecular sensors & bio-mimetic receptors
  • Probes and sensors for cellular parameters



  • Registration & grant application: July 31, 2022
  • Notification of acceptance: August 12, 2022
  • Final registration: August 26, 2022
  • Payment due: September 2, 2022
