Hardware

Our technological innovation consists in the painless collection of blood. This is achieved by placing electrodes in the ring that transmit current to block the sensation of pain. We mitigated the risk of biowaste by denaturating blood with special chemicals and by having retractable needle. 

 

Lab-on-a-chip

For antibody detection we use low cost paper based microfluidic device that uses capillary action and does not require pumps or additional power source. We convert bio responses into electronic signals through electrochemical reaction that allows parallel and highly sensitive assays.
