Biosensor for lungs


Tiny probe that senses deep in the lung set to shed light on disease

https://m.phys.org/news/2019-06-tiny-probe-deep-lung-disease.html

Lung diseases are one of the leading causes of death and disability in the world. Despite significant advances, little is known about how disease develops in patients suffering from pneumonia or lung injury.

A team of scientists developed the probe, which comprises an optical fibre about 0.2mm in diameter that holds 19 sensors.

Each sensor can measure different indicators in tissues, such as acidity and oxygen levels, which provide important information on the body's reaction to disease processes.
