Photonic Biosensors for Clinical and Point-of-Care Diagnostics

Tuesday 13 December 2022, 03:00pm

ICN2 Seminar Room, Campus UAB

By Dr Ali K. Yetisen, Department of Chemical Engineering, Imperial College London

Abstract: Dr Yetisen will discuss the development of colorimetric, fluorescent and optical fibre sensors for applications in the next-generation of point-of-care applications including in vitro diagnostics, wearables and implantable devices. He will focus on the advances in the fabrication of photonic biochemical sensors that can quantitatively report on clinically-relevant biomarkers. He will discuss the applications of the biosensors in metabolite monitoring and diabetes management, and elucidate the outcome of a pilot clinical study in diabetic patients. To obtain quantitative measurements from the biosensors, Dr Yetisen will demonstrate emerging smartphone-based spectrophotometer platforms for point-of-care diagnostics. The perceived limitations and future applications of the photonic biochemical sensors will be also outlined.

Hosted by Prof. Daniel Ruiz Molina, Nanostructured Functional Materials Group Leader at ICN2.
