Biosensor Technology: Driving Advances in Healthcare

Biosensors and point-of-care devices are poised to change the delivery of healthcare. This 60-minute Webinar from the editors of Medical Design Briefs explores cutting-edge developments and their role in the future of medical devices.

Biosensor technology can be used in cheap, disposable point-of-care devices or can be used to provide continuous monitoring in implantable devices. Measurement in biomedicine presents unique challenges in both implementation and interpretation. These ideas will be explored with examples from current research including solid microneedle arrays for use in sepsis and therapeutic drug monitoring.

In addition, the Webinar will look at biosensors integrated into wearable devices for continuous health monitoring. Biomarkers can be non-invasively monitored in samples such as saliva and exhaled breath condensate as well as minimally invasively in blood and interstitial fluid using smart wristbands.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentations.
