Wearables for fast and easy diagnostics
You probably know that you can use wearables to monitor your health, sleep and improvements in sports. Today I attended a lecture by IMEC CEO Luc Van den hove organised by Holland High Tech. He spoke about the company’s vision on ‘connecting the unconnected’, using wearables to not only monitor your health, but also to give you a diagnose. How? To use a blood sample and see the results on your smartphone. Check the short clip.
If you liked this movie, also check out their idea of a Cell Sorter. Researchers are developing a lab-on-chip cell sorter. In this system, cells are pushed through microfluidic channels past a lens-free microscope that identifies them, such as red blood cells or even tumor cells in an early stage.
