Low-cost, High-sensitivity, Reconfigurable Optical Sensing Components for Point-of-Care Diagnostics

Rebecca Richards-Kortum and Tomasz Tkaczyk of Rice University in the U.S. propose to develop a plug-and-sense read-out and signal transduction (ROST) component for point-of-care devices that will be palm-sized, producible for under $10, and with new interrogation units can be rearranged within the universal fixture to accommodate new sample platforms.
