Nano-biosensing Systems for Health Monitoring: Opportunities and Challenges
Dr. Zeliha Cansu Canbek Özdil
Medical technology for early disease diagnosis advanced significantly over the years helping to improve patient quality of life and potential treatment possibilities. Empowering diagnostic systems with nanotechnology to expand the limits of sensing has the potential to revolutionize the entire health industry. The adoption of nanoscale structures for in vivo diagnosis is expected to have a remarkable rise in the upcoming years.
At the same time, there are some major concerns regarding the development of nanotechnology-based strategies. One of them is to build an end-to-end solution that can gather the information in nano scale inside the body and can transfer the information to outside the body. The implanted and wearable sensors providing high accuracy and sensitivity, simultaneous tracking, and easy usage, are proposed as a promising solution. Yet, the challenge is to build a conventional wireless link between a biocompatible in body sensing module that is sensitive enough to track the symptoms on a molecular scale, and an on-body reader antenna.
The focus of this presentation will be to introduce a novel sensing mechanism based on a biological component and a dynamic sensing system. The proposed design includes a traceable signal, a transducer, and an on-body tag antenna that can transmit the molecular signal to a smart monitoring device via a conventional wireless link.
