Biosensor
A biosensor is an analytical device, used for the detection of an analyte, that combines a biological component with a physicochemical detector.
A common example of a commercial biosensor is the ...
Scientists Have Turned Gum Into A Carbon Nanotube-Loaded Sensor
It sounds like it could be something that Q hands to Bond, but researchers have developed a way to incorporate carbon nanotubes into chewing gum so that the sticky mass can be used as a stretchable, b...
Google X Smart Contact Lens
The latest fantastical project to come out Google's Google X lab is a smart contact lens to help diabetics track glucose levels.
Blood glucose monitoring
Blood glucose monitoring is a way of testing the concentration of glucose in the blood (glycemia). Particularly important in the care of diabetes mellitus, a blood glucose test is performed by pierc...
Electronic nose
An electronic nose is a device intended to detect odors or flavors.Over the last decade, "electronic sensing" or "e-sensing" technologies have undergone important developments from a technical and com...
Biotransducer
A biotransducer is the recognition-transduction component of a biosensor system. It consists of two intimately coupled parts; a bio-recognition layer and a physicochemical transducer, which acting to...
DNA field-effect transistor
A DNA field-effect transistor (DNAFET) is a field-effect transistor which uses the field-effect due to the partial charges of DNA molecules to function as a biosensor. The structure of DNAFETs is simi...
Fluorescent glucose biosensor
Fluorescent glucose biosensors are devices that measure the concentration of glucose in diabetic patients by means of sensitive protein that relays the concentration by means of fluorescence, an alter...
Blood glucose meter
A glucose meter (or glucometer) is a medical device for determining the approximate concentration of glucose in the blood. It can also be a strip of glucose paper dipped into a substance and measured...
