Medical Microfluids

Medical Advances with Flexible Electronics

The market for biomedical diagnosis is expected to continue growing exponentially within the next decade due to an aging and growing global population that is causing an increase in health expenditures to address ailments such as obesity, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases. Traditionally, biomedical diagnosis is mainly performed by sending collected samples (blood, urine, or other samples) to an off-site laboratory. Printed electronics has fundamentally changed this process.

Flexible electronics have opened the door to point-of-care biosensor devices that allow biomedical diagnosis to occur at the time and place of patient care. These advanced biosensor devices are small in size, extremely accurate, and deliver fast sample-to-answer responses. Nissha GSI has been active in this space for almost 10 years and is currently printing lab-on-a-chip biosensors based on tight tolerance microfluidic printing technology. This technique simplifies the steps of testing, automates the process, and further enables the miniaturization of biomedical devices.
