Laser-printed sensors could monitor chemotherapy progress

11/20/2013 | BioOptics World

Laser-printed biosensors may eventually be able to track the effectiveness of cancer patients' chemotherapy. Researchers at the U.K.'s Optoelectronics Research Centre have received a grant of more than $370,000 from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council to pursue the technology. "The paper-based sensors would enable diagnosis at an early stage, from a patient's bedside in the comfort of their own home, without the need for either specialized equipment or trained medical personnel," said senior research fellow Dr. Collin Sones.
