CHN’s Work Cited in Electronic Products Magazine

InterNano Industry News - July 25, 2015 - 3:45am
Electronic Products magazine has cited the Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing in its July 2015 cover story on printed and flexible electronics. Northeastern’s Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing (CHN) has developed a simple and highly sensitive multi-biosensor containing semiconductor single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) that are enzyme-immobilized for detecting D-glucose, L-lactate, and urea in sweat (fig. 1). CHN’s director, Prof. Ahmed Busnaina, notes that, “The utilization of semiconducting carbon nanotubes for electric detection results in high repeatability and sensitivity. By leveraging the advantage of the carbon nanotubes’ electrical response and enzyme reaction, fast, specific, and continuous detection is achieved. Printing of nanomaterials to create the sensor results in low manufacturing cost”. Download the article from the CHN website: P/F Sensors: Their Future and Challenges (PDF)
