At Amrita Biotechnology, researchers are developing state-of-the-art, cost-effective, automated biomedical devices.The Center is currently working on a high-quality, low-cost automated insulin pump designed for the precise, personalized and continuous delivery of insulin in a subcutaneous manner. Simultaneously, attempts to develop an amperometric glucose sensor are also in progress. Together, the two devices when introduced into the field will allow for low-income diabetes patients to monitor and regulate their insulin levels in an easy and affordable manner.
