Japanese scientists have designed the first-ever wearable devices to accurately monitor jaundice, a yellowing of the skin due to increased bilirubin levels in the blood that can result in severe medical conditions in infants.
IdentifySensors Biologics, a Purdue University-affiliated technology firm developing a rapid diagnostic platform for detecting pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2, has entered into a new partnership with Purdue Research Foundation and will open an office in Purdue's Discovery Park District.
Scientists have now created a compact, lightweight, Bluetooth-low-energy-based wireless neuronal recording system.
Researchers at Rice University have received funding for up to $1 million to develop a real-time sensor system able to detect minute amounts of the airborne virus that causes COVID-19 infection.
Researchers at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine have been recruiting health care workers to investigate whether a wearable device—a wristwatch—can capture real-time data that can be employed to alert wearers about slight physiological variations that may suggest they are infected with COVID-19.
Smiths Detection, a global leader in threat detection and security screening technologies, today reports that its BioFlash® Biological Identifier is capable of detecting SARS-CoV-2 in the air following tests conducted by the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID).
Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a soft, stretchy skin patch that can be worn on the neck to continuously track blood pressure and heart rate while measuring the wearer's levels of glucose as well as lactate, alcohol or caffeine.
Scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) and their collaborators from Russian and foreign scientific centers have identified a new technique to predict the temperature of a chemical reaction stimulated by pseudo-particles—plasmons.
Many life-threatening medical conditions, such as sepsis, which is triggered by blood-borne pathogens, cannot be detected accurately and quickly enough to initiate the right course of treatment.
Scientists from the University of Colorado Boulder have designed a novel, affordable wearable device that turns the human body into a biological battery.
