|BioMEMS: How emerging paradigms in microelectronics can be harnessed to address fundamental challenges in biosensing|
|Keywords: Microneedles, Bioelectronics, Biosensors|
|BioMEMS and microfluidics have persisted as buzzwords over the past few decades, but have yet to manifest their claims of simplifying healthcare workflows. Emerging paradigms in the microfabrication domain are accelerating the development of intelligent healthcare technologies aimed at passively acquiring physiological data to help facilitate the presentation of useful prognostic and diagnostic information. This talk highlights the development of a novel class of minimally-invasive electrochemical biosensors that facilitate the quantification of relevant metabolomic, ionic, and neurochemical information residing in the viable epidermis in a continuous, real-time fashion. Fabricated through manufacturing processes that are scalable, cost-effective, and highly precise, these novel biosensing modalities seek to bridge the gap between analytical-grade instrumentation typically found in the hospital laboratory and user requirements for unobtrusive, low- profile, skin-applied devices able to deliver timely, actionable information using existing wirelessly-enabled wearable and mobile platforms. Armed with such information, the user is empowered to understand the physiological implications of their daily lifestyle choices, such as how diet, exercise, sleep patterns, or stress management all come to bear on their overall metabolic health.|
