UU Team Showcases Life-Saving Heart Attack Sensor Technology

University of Ulster scientists are developing a next-generation diagnostic sensor which could revolutionise point-of-care diagnosis of people who have suffered a suspected heart attack.

The UU scientists are working with medical staff at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast on trials of the device. They are also collaborating with scientists at IIT Bombay in India on the use of carbon nanotubes to filter blood before it is passed over the sensors. Unfiltered blood is not suitable for analysis.
