  • Toward Point-of-Care Assessment of Hemostasis Using Miniaturized Dielectric Blood Coagulometry

    Point-of-care (POC) diagnostic devices hold great promise to significantly impact healthcare delivery and address health disparities. These devices enable a shift in focus away from the utilization of high-cost specialized care for the treatment of late-stage diseases toward predictive, preventative, and personalized health for more effective disease monitoring and management. In the developed world, POC technologies are expected to offer effective and feasible means of reducing healthcare costs and improving patient care, whereas in the developing world POC technologies are urgently needed to address pressing healthcare needs with affordable and accessible solutions.

  • Circuits, Sensors, and Hybrid Packaging Approaches for Lab-on-CMOS Applications

    The Lab-on-CMOS research community leverages the power and economies of scale of modern silicon integrated circuits, built up over the previous fifty years for high-performance computation and imaging, for low-cost chemical and biological sensing applications. The integration of new materials, sensing modalities, and intelligent computation in CMOS-based sensor platforms promises a broad range of miniaturized diagnostic, therapeutic, and continuous monitoring systems.

  • Minimalistic optical fiber biosensors as a tool for detecting pandemic viruses: tutorial and perspectives in biosafety

    The outbreak of pandemic viruses is a danger for the human ecosystem; the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a large socio-economic impact all over the world, and was followed by a successive monkeypox outbreak which was reported in 2022. In addition, undetected activities related to weaponized pathogens for biological warfare, or unintended outbreaks, can cause significant danger. For this reason, the scientific communities have gathered significant interest in the development of devices for the recognition of viral pathogens that could work as point-of-care detectors, enabling features as real-time sensing, low limit of detection, multiplexing, safety.
