An Electrochemical CMOS Biosensor Array For Point-Of-Care Applications

Point-of-care (POC) testing is essential to halt the spread of deadly infectious diseases (e.g., Ebola, Zika, etc.) and is needed for rapid and accurate screening both in and outside of clinical settings. Label-free bioassays are desirable for POC testing as they have fewer reagents and assay steps resulting in lower cost and ease of use.   Biosensors based on electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), an ultra-sensitive, label-free sensing technique, are a promising technology for precise and rapid disease diagnosis at the point-of-care. However, EIS usually requires mixers and lock-in detection to measure both the magnitude and phase of the complex impedance.

A Method and Device for the Estimation of Blood Glucose Concentration from Signals of Sensors Implanted in Tissues

Diabetes is a major disease affecting all populations and age groups, and society as a whole. All therapies for diabetes are based on achieving close glucose control. Close glucose control achieved by sufficient and timely administration of therapy has been shown to reduce the destructive “long-term complications” of diabetes, such as retinal damage, kidney failure, amputations, and cardiovascular damage, as well as debilitating and life-threatening short-term hypoglycemia. However, attainment of close control requires a means of glucose monitoring and means for correction of glucose imbalances such as administration of insulin, pharmaceuticals, diet adjustment, and exercise, based on the monitored glucose concentration.
