A paradigm shift in sensing methods and principles is required to meet the legislative demands for detecting hazardous substances in the molecular world. This will encompass the development of new sensing technologies capable of performing very selective and sensitive measurements at an acceptable cost, developed by multidisciplinary teams of chemists, engineers and computer scientists to harvest information from a multitude of molecular targets in health, food and the environment. In this study we present the successful implementation of a low-cost, wireless chemical sensing system that employs a minimum set of components for effective operation. Specifically, our efforts resulted in a wireless, tri-electrode, ISE pH sensor for use in environmental monitoring. Sensor calibration and validated insitu field trials have been carried out and are presented in this paper.
