Breath sensor to spot diseases and monitor health

Breath sensor to spot diseases and monitor health
Breath pattern recognition is a futuristic diagnostic platform. Simple characterising target gas concentrations of human exhaled breath will lead to diagnose of the disease as well as physical condition. A research group under Prof. Il-Doo Kim in the Department of Materials Science has developed diagnostic sensors using protein-encapsulated nanocatalysts, which can diagnose certain diseases by analysing human exhaled breath.

Home healthcare for patients with diabetes improves

Home healthcare for patients with diabetes improves
Having signed a partnership with CERITD, the French Centre for Studies and Research for the Intensification of Diabetes Treatment, Air Liquide is strengthening its position in home healthcare for patients with diabetes. Air Liquide has also acquired an equity stake in 'Diabeloop', the French start-up that is developing an electronic artificial pancreas. With this new collaboration, Air Liquide continues the approach initiated by CERITD based on cooperation between hospital teams and homecare nurses.

Rainbow super sensor receives CE mark

Rainbow super sensor receives CE mark
Masimo has announced the CE marking of the rainbow Super DCI-mini sensor, a reusable spot-check sensor that features Masimo SET Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry and rainbow SET technology with multiple physiologic measurements – including, for the first time, the ability to measure total hemoblogin (SpHb), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO), methemoglobin (SpMet), and arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2) using the same noninvasive reusable sensor.

Quantum sensor identifies individual atoms in biomolecules

Quantum sensor identifies individual atoms in biomolecules
Nuclear magnetic resonance scanners are now extremely sensitive. A quantum sensor developed by a team headed by Professor Jörg Wrachtrup at the University of Stuttgart and researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, now makes it possible to use nuclear magnetic resonance scanning to even investigate the structure of individual proteins atom by atom. In the future, the method could help to diagnose diseases at an early stage by detecting the first defective proteins.

Quantum sensors herald next-gen wearable brain imaging

Quantum sensors herald next-gen wearable brain imaging
Scientists at the University of Nottingham are working with University College London (UCL) on a five year project which has the potential to revolutionise the world of human brain imaging. Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a technique for mapping brain activity - it measures the magnetic fields generated by electrical currents that occur naturally in the brain.

Sensor enables medical CT scanners to render sharper images

Sensor enables medical CT scanners to render sharper images
Worldwide supplier of high performance sensor solutions, ams, has released the AS5900, a current-to-digital converter for use in Computed Tomography (CT) scanners which offers ultra-low noise, very high resolution and linearity. The analogue performance of the AS5900 will enable new CT scanners to produce sharper, more detailed images. Medical CT scanners equipped with the AS5900 will feature an improved X-ray detector module, and will help physicians to produce more accurate diagnoses while subjecting patients to lower doses of radiation.

Barometric sensor detects presence of disease biomarkers

Barometric sensor detects presence of disease biomarkers
Researchers from Jinan University in Guangzhou, China and Washington State University have developed a novel type of sensor that works by measuring pressure changes induced by the production of oxygen (O2). The technology may miniaturise and make readily available testing of a wide variety of biomarkers. The team of researchers has already demonstrated how the technology can be used to detect thrombin, a blood clotting enzyme, and carcinoembryonic antigen, a protein related to a number of cancers.

Silver atom nanoclusters could become efficient biosensors

Silver atom nanoclusters could become efficient biosensors
By combining chemistry and nanotechnology, the research community in recent years has developed a kind of extremely small nanoclusters consisting of only a few noble metal atoms bound to a DNA fragment. Such complexes are of major interest on account of their optical properties. They are considered to have great potential, for example, in the imaging applications and development of biosensors.
