Technology Description

Researchers at the University of Iowa have developed a device for the accurate measurement of analytes in a biological or non-biological solution. This device, which could be implanted, is an optical sampling cell that contains a electromagnetic radiation source and a microspectrometer. The microspectrometer collects one or more parameters of the analyte in the infrared spectrum and reports the concentration data for this analyte in real-time. Because this device uses light absorption data for the analyte, it requires no additional reagents for analyte determination and thus provides continuous data without any recycling of components.
