Abstract [en]

Healthcare spending is growing unsustainably and new thinking is crucial to finding effective solutions that deliver the high quality of life rightly demanded by our ever ageing population. This presentation focuses on meeting these challenges using amperometric and votammetric instruments printed on paper or plastic substrates to deliver inexpensive devices for a wide range of electroanalytical applications. These platforms form a workhorse in our hands for various diagnostic systems including enzyme electrodes for multi-parametric diabetes monitoring and for the management of chronic kidney disease, electrochemical sensors for enzymes such as G6-P or amylase (a marker for stress), label-free affinity sensors for cancer markers and heart disease, aptasensors for cancer cells, DNA Sensors and robust devices based on imprinted and smart polymers.  Using these technologies, we envision over-the-counter paper instruments for self-diagnosis of common diseases, home kits to support people after transplant surgery or cancer treatment, smart cartons for pharmaceuticals, pocket tests for allergens, food toxicity, drinking water etc., and strips or patches that communicate with mobile telecommunications. Realisation of these paradigm-changing new products requires the effective harnessing of emerging technology, inspired vision from clinical partners or others “users” and leading-edge engineering to design and produce functional systems in appropriate volumes at the right cost.
