Point-of-care device for the selective detection of potassium

Posted by Unitat from Fundació URVResponsive · Patents for licensing · Spain

Summary of the technology

This invention allows the selection of proper conditions for the preparation of a potentiometric cell (both working and reference electrodes) in order to measure potassium in whole blood. This is particularly relevant for kidney function and patients in dialysis centres.

Description of the technology

This paper-based potentiometric celluses a suitable amount of selected polymer matrix and suitable components to afford required analytical parameters for detection in blood.

Current development status

Laboratory prototypes


This can be directly applied in chronic diseases management, and the immediate application is a direct measurement of potassium in blood without the requirement of dilution nor serum preparation for the patients.
