These slides use concepts from my (Jeff Funk) course entitled analyzing hi-tech opportunities to analyze the increasing economic feasibility of bio-sensors for measuring cholesterol in humans. Bio-sensors detect the level of cholesterol (and other biological materials) using enzymes, matrices, and transducers. The enzymes, which are held in a matrix, react with the cholesterol and an electric signal is produced from an amperometric transducer. Improvements in sensitivity, response time, shelf life, detection limit, and reusability have been achieved through creating more appropriate biological materials for the enzymes, matrices, and transducers.
Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later.
