Summary of the technology

The present technology belongs to the medical field: by means of potentiometric sensors it is possible to detect the presence of hydrogen peroxide in clinical samples. This fact allows the development of devices for measuring hydrogen peroxide, preferably in a single undiluted whole blood drop out of the clinical laboratory.

Details of the Technology Offer

The detection of hydrogen peroxide is always at the spotlight of chemical analysis. As an analyte, this substance plays a major role in many biological, industrial and environmental systems. Additionally, a plethora of bioanalytical assays and biosensors currently used in research as well as in routine clinical tests are based on the generation and detection of peroxide.

One of the industrial applications of this technology is the management and monitoring of chronic diseases. Diabetes, cholesterol and renal function are among the main biomarkers measured for the management of chronic diseases.

Although portable devices (for example glucometers) already exist for the management of diabetes, these sort of devices work by amperometry, using three electrodes for measurement. This technology uses potentiometry, using a two-electrode configuration to do the measurement, which gives more simplicity and strength to the technique. Comparing to conventional detection methods, this one drastically simplifies the measures, avoiding dilution, preparation of the serum, etc.
