Chemical Etching the Next Generation of Resonating Biosensors
Highland Biosciences Limited has partnered with Precision Micro in the development and manufacture of a miniaturized ‘tuning fork’ biosensor. The component forms an essential part of HBL’s proprietary microviscometer, that is claimed will improve the safety of a number of medical procedures by providing results conveniently at the point of need.
The biosensor design comprises of 3 micro engineered stainless steel tines, which resonate many thousands of times a second, detecting microscopic changes in film thickness, density and viscosity of a liquid sample and converting the presence of bacterial toxins into an electronic signal.
