TechConnect Innovation Program

Transdermal Microneedle Sensors

Sandia National Laboratories, NM, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

We are developing a wearable point of care diagnostic system capable of monitoring an individual’s local and systemic physiological state based on transdermal microneedle sensors. Such a minimally invasive sensor has applications in home health care, sports medicine, and defense of the warfighter.

Primary Application Area: Biotech & Biological Sciences

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 2

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: The IP is attractive because wearable medical sensors are quite limited in scope at the moment. In contrast to the current state of the art which is primarily focused on sports medicine our applications represent the next generation of health monitors.
