s-SWNT BIOSENSORS FOR DETECTION OF GLUCOSE LACTATE AND UREA

INV-14013

INVENTORS: Jin Young Lee, Ahmed Busnaina, Hanchul Cho, Sivasubramanian Somu

 

Description       

Conventionally, terminal FET devices have been used for various physiological detection requirements. Such devices are associated with significant power consumptions. Moreover, these devices are prepared using complex/cumbersome fabrication processes. This invention discloses the development and use of novel single-walled carbon nano-tube based biosensors for an effective detection of physiological analytes such as D-glucose, L-lactate, and urea in vivo; overcoming prior-art challenges, limitations, and/or unmet needs.

Value Proposition

The SWNT Biosensor:

•Is highly stable and sensitive

•Has a higher shelf life (~45 days)

•Consumes lesser power as compared to conventional devices

•Is fabricated using a much simpler and more efficient process

•Is highly compact, with a capability of in-vivo mode application

•Has a smaller footprint as compared to conventional sensors

•Is associated with a higher repeatability as compared to conventional sensors

•Is capable of being continuously used for up to 10 days and intermittently for more than 21 days

•Comprises use of semiconductor single walled carbon nanotubes having immobilized enzymes (such as glucose oxidase, lactate oxidase, and urease) linked via non-covalent linkages
