Analyzing Parameters Optimum for a Highly Sensitive Analyte Sensor in a Point of Care Medical Device

Health icon, disabled. A red heart with a cardiac rhythm running through it.

Existing analyte measurement techniques are error-prone, time-consuming, and expensive. Hence, a handheld medical device capable of accurately measuring the amount of analyte (as low as 10 micromolar) in the blood is a long-desired requirement of doctors. Determining optimum parameters to get high sensitivity in sensors is required. This project is aimed at analyzing the effect of sensor concentration by performing image analysis of sensors made at different concentrations.
