CONCEPT

mHealth Teller’s electronics and nanoscale chemical sensors will enable construction of microscopic sensors capable of detecting patterns of chemicals in a fluid. Information from a large number of such devices flowing passively in the bloodstream allows estimation of the properties of tiny chemical sources in a macroscopic tissue volume.

 

Estimates of plausible device capabilities have been used to evaluate their performance for typical chemicals released into the blood by tissues in response to localized injury or infection.

 

These observations indicate that the devices can readily enable differentiation of a single cell-sized chemical source from the background chemical concentration in vivo, providing high-resolution sensing in both time and space.
