Low-cost Polymeric Microcantilever Sensor Array for Point of Care (POC) Personal Medical Treatment Applications

Goals

Develop highly sensitive, low-cost biosensors using 3D printing and micro-fabrication. Detect disease-causing pathogen using smartphone. Develop a user-friendly smartphone app to interact with patient or doctor. Implement image processing techniques to automate data processing.

Issues Involved or Addressed

The biosensors developed in this project will provide a way for early medical check-up before going to the doctor. On clinical side, these will reduce the turnaround time for doctors to get patients’ medical results.
