Pacifier sensor detects glucose levels in babies

UCSD’s Joe Wang has developed a soft, flexible, pacifier-based biosensor that continuously monitors glucose levels in saliva to detect diabetes in babies. Until now,  continuous glucose monitoring in newborns,  available only in major hospitals, requires piercing the infant’s skin to reach interstitial fluid. The team created a proof of concept pacifier where small amounts of saliva […]

Infrared light detects tumors under the skin

Stanford’s Hongjie Dai has developed a deep-tissue imaging technique that clearly illuminates tumors beneath the skin.  It relies on nanoparticles containing erbium,  which glows in the infrared.  The promising technology has only been tested on mice, so far. In a study, the technique was used to predict cancer patient response to immunotherapy, and to measure drug […]
