Sensor chip for monitoring tumors
Date:8/26/2011

tic housing."

Not even twice the size of a thumbnail, the sensor chip and electronics have a compact footprint. However, the package must be made even smaller before it can be implanted in cancer patients using minimally invasive surgery. In addition, the designers want to add additional sensors for measuring acidity and temperature. Also at the development phase is a miniature medication pump to be implanted with the sensor chip. The pump will be able to release chemotherapeutic agents in direct proximity to the tumor if necessary. Before moving on to the next phase, the sensor has to pass trials in animals. The researchers hope that the new technology will make cancer therapies more targeted and less aggressive for patients.
