Electronics have permeated nearly every part of our lives from medicine to entertainment to the way we work. As the uses of electronics increases, so does the need for highly specialized electronic components. Now, a new method for optimizing electronics has been developed that will dramatically cut the time it takes to get new components and systems to market.
As modern medicine becomes more personalized and less centralized, the need for scalable and tunable platforms for next-generation point-of-care biosensors remains an ongoing research objective. One promising technology for point-of-care analysis is electrochemical sensors, which are portable, ultrasensitive, and inexpensive. Electrochemical sensors are compatible with integrated circuit technology, enabling integration of sensors with the necessary electronic circuitry for data acquisition, processing, and transfer.Learn More
