Smart sensors

The Center for Smart Sensors and Integrated Microsystems in collaboration with the Wayne State University Medical School are currently working on an array of biomedical sensor devices and systems. Current initiatives include (i) intercranial pressure measurement sensors, (ii) a heart transplant multi-gas sensor, (iii) acoustic wave biosensors and arrays, and (iv) a retina and cortical implant project. As an example, the heart transplant multi-gas sensor is designed to monitor the in vitro heart carbon dioxide, oxygen and methane for determination of heart viability during transplant and for basic laboratory cardio research experimentation. A micro-catheter with multisensors is under development for direct insertion into cardiac blood vessels and tissue for this application.
