Point-of-care non-invasive blood and tissue biochemistry

Principal investigator

Professor P. A. Kyriacou

Dr J. Phillips

Dr I. Triantis

Dr M. Hickey

Project overview

The focus of this project is to develop non-invasive optical rapid measurements and/or continuous monitoring of biological variables currently only measurable via blood samples or invasive techniques (i.e. concentrations of chromophores, gases, hormones, ionic salts, enzymes, lipids, and other biomarkers relating to organ function, stress, mood disorders, etc., within biological tissues and blood). This will be made possible by applying optical and electrical impedance spectroscopic techniques
