Professor and Director, State University of New York-Binghamton, USA
Title: Powering biosensors with disposable biobatteries
Biography: Seokheun “Sean” Choi
Effective and rapid diagnostics have the capability to revolutionize public healthcare both in developed and developing countries. One of the key challenges that is critical to address in developing biosensors is to effectively and sufficiently power them. In developing countries, where the electricity grid is not well established and the use of batteries is not cost-effective, power supplies are the most problematic issue for stand-alone and self-sustained devices.
In this talk, Prof. Choi will provide an overview of techniques for powering diagnostic devices for use in both developed and developing countries, as well as detailed discussions of recent advancements in biosensors. He will also discuss next-generation diagnostics and their power source strategies.
