Refinement of a Colour-based Metabolomic Biosensor System (Part 2)

This project involves designing a portable device for measuring concentrations of certain metabolites in a person’s
blood or urine. This is an easy-to-use device that connects to a smartphone to display a final result based on
measurements of multiple components to generate a specific health diagnosis. Different tests can be run on the
same device. The device works by loading custom-made fluidic chips into the device which contains dried
chemical reactions.

Portable Colorectal Screening Colorimetric Metabolite Biosensor

This project involves designing a portable biosensor that measures the concentration of multiple metabolites in a person’s urine. The device measures the colour of the urine after reacting with the developed reactions to get metabolite concentrations. These concentrations are input to an algorithm to get a diagnosis. The first test will screen for colorectal cancer. Tricca Technologies Inc. will use this technology to make metabolomic diagnosis affordable and accessible to everyone and this project is the first step.
