Analyzing Parameters Optimum for a Highly Sensitive Analyte Sensor in a Point of Care Medical Device
Existing analyte measurement techniques are error-prone, time-consuming, and expensive. Hence, a handheld medical device capable of accurately measuring the amount of analyte (as low as 10 micromolar) in the blood is a long-desired requirement of doctors. Determining optimum parameters to get high sensitivity in sensors is required. This project is aimed at analyzing the effect of sensor concentration by performing image analysis of sensors made at different concentrations.

Jalal U. and Syeda F. Ahmad and their children — Jaheen N., Raisa N. and Nafisah N., all of whom attended the Fulton Schools — established a fund to give back and support undergraduate students in their pursuit of knowledge and the advancement of research. Their endowment, which funds a materials science, mechanical, biomedical or electrical engineering student, was created to help more students have the life-changing experience of conducting research through FURI.
