Researchers Develop ‘Smart’ Microneedle Adhesive Bandage System for Monitoring Sodium, Glucose, pH, and More

Platform could be next breakthrough in quest for painless technology to replace in-patient phlebotomy blood draws for many clinical laboratory tests In a proof-of-concept study, scientists from Israel and China have developed a “smart” microneedle adhesive bandage that measures and monitors in real time three critical biomarkers that currently require invasive blood draws for medical laboratory tests commonly performed on patients in hospitals. The “smart” microneedle system developed by...

Transdermal Patch Continuously Monitors Blood Chemistry—Without Needles and Clinical Pathology Laboratory Testing

New blood chemistry monitoring device could replace some traditional laboratory testing There’s a new technology that makes it possible to continuously monitor an individual’s blood chemistry and wirelessly transmit the data. This technology uses a transdermal patch and is a different approach to clinical diagnostics with the potential to supplant some traditional medical laboratory testing. This transdermal patch was developed by Sano Intelligence, one of San Francisco-based Rock Health’s...
