Medical analysis on a chip: a revolution happening
Wed 29 June, 2022 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST
The pregnancy test and the glucose meter are classic examples of biosensors that have a clear impact on people’s lives. More recently, everyone has become familiar with COVID-19 self-tests.
The provision of healthcare is changing, with a tendency towards telemedicine whenever possible. But such changes are only truly effective with new biosensors that patients can use in a simple way.
This talk will highlight several examples of biosensors for a range of diseases and conditions. Miniaturisation, together with the use of nanotechnologies and artificial intelligence, makes it possible to have full medical laboratories on a small chip.
