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.

Level sensor distinguishes between liquid and foam

Level sensor distinguishes between liquid and foam
A drip chamber level sensor solution has been introduced by CeramTec to deliver measurement accuracy and performance in medical applications. Designed in response to the needs of medical device manufacturers as well as CE and FDA regulations, the innovation provides a level of measurement accuracy crucial in so many medical devices, including haemodialysis machines and other liquid/ blood handling applications.

Graphene-based sensor could improve diagnosis of asthma

Graphene-based sensor could improve diagnosis of asthma
Rutgers University-New Brunswick scientists have created a graphene-based sensor that could lead to earlier detection of looming asthma attacks and improve the management of asthma and other respiratory diseases, preventing hospitalisations and deaths. The sensor paves the way for the development of devices - possibly resembling fitness trackers like the Fitbit - which people could wear and then know when and at what dosage to take their medication.

Respiratory rate sensor built into a cotton t-shirt

Respiratory rate sensor built into a cotton t-shirt
At the Université Laval in Quebec City, Canada, researchers have developed a respiration sensor built into a t-shirt that can be sampled by a nearby radio device. The idea is that patients in a hospital would wear a lightweight, comfortable shirt that doesn’t have any wires, while their breathing rate would be discreetly monitored in real-time. The sensor itself is simply a spiral antenna made out of multi-material fibres.

Miniature encoders help advance surgical robot capabilities

Miniature encoders help advance surgical robot capabilities
With the demand of robotic surgery being one of the most exciting and rapidly developing areas of medical technology, they are encouraging motion control engineers to push the boundaries of their discipline. Gerard Bush an application engineer with INMOCO looks at one project where the humble encoder has reached new heights.

Biosensor zymonic acid shows changes in pH value

Biosensor zymonic acid shows changes in pH value
Tumors, inflammation and circulatory disorders locally disturb the body's acid-base balance. These changes in pH value could be used for example to verify the success of cancer treatments. Up to now, however, there has been no imaging method to render such changes visible in patients. Now a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed a pH sensor that renders pH values visible through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) – in a non-invasive, radiation-free manner.

Wearable ECG monitor improves diagnosis of arrhythmia

Wearable ECG monitor improves diagnosis of arrhythmia
Cardiac Insight, a U.S. developer of body worn sensing devices and computational software, has announced the FDA has cleared the company’s wearable electrocardiogram (ECG) sensor, CARDEA SOLO. The device offers physicians immediate access to improved reporting and analysis of heartbeat-to-heartbeat data. The design and ease of use also encourage better patient compliance for the acquisition and recording of complete patient data.

Driving the growth of the Internet of Medical Things

Driving the growth of the Internet of Medical Things
Wearable and ingestible sensors are revolutionising the health monitoring space as the demand for quality healthcare continues to rise. Emphasis on preventive health has led to the development of prognostic sensors for applications in the medical industry. This, in turn, has led to a shift in the healthcare business model from a diagnostic one to more prognostic and preventive health and wellness.

Wearable sweat sensor can diagnose cystic fibrosis

Wearable sweat sensor can diagnose cystic fibrosis
A wristband-type wearable sweat sensor could transform diagnostics and drug evaluation for cystic fibrosis, diabetes and other diseases. The sensor collects sweat, measures its molecular constituents and then electronically transmits the results for analysis and diagnostics, according to a study led by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine, in collaboration with the University of California-Berkeley.
