Biosensor Research Laboratory was established with the mission of developing affordable biosensors for the early monitoring of diseases such as diabetes, cancer, coronary diseases, etc. With an experienced team spanning Scientists, Engineers and Physicians coupled with state of the art research facility, the center is strategically poised for product development and translation into specific products helping improve the lives of patients.
Over the span of a few years, the lab has developed and fabricated a nonenzymatic glucose sensing strip and glucometer, Lab-on-a-chip (LOC) device for the monitoring of diabetes, cholesterol and kidney function, a medium throughput LOC device and a microhematocrit centrifuge. The lab is also involved in the development of sensors and Lab-on-a-Chip device for the early detection of cancer and anemia paper-based devices for the monitoring of liver function and women health. The other area in which the lab has been working on the sequencing of DNA using handheld devices.
