Implantable Wireless Oxygen Biosensor

Tech ID: 24224 / UC Case 2014-927-0

Brief Description

Successful transplantation of bioengineered tissues, cells, and devices require sufficient oxygenation. Researchers at the University of California, Irvine have developed a new biosensor and method to wirelessly assess perfusion to tissues, cells and devices in patients.

Suggested uses

This new biosensor may be incorporated into devices for transplantation to ensure that the microenvironment of the device is conducive to cell and tissue viability.
