Nano-Chip Biosensor for Infectious Diseases & Malaria

Vipul Bansal of RMIT University in Australia will develop a nanochip patch that utilizes a surface enhanced raman scattering platform to detect infectious diseases along with Malaria. The patch will be equipped with micro-needles that when applied to the skin come in close proximity to blood vessels which carry biomarkers for infectious diseases. Using a battery-operated laser scanner, Bansal will detect low concentrations of these molecules due to their unique Raman signature.
