If you are in London this summer take the opportunity to pop into the Science Museum where the printed biosensor, developed in collaboration between LiU Professor Anthony Turner and Acreo Swedish ICT, will be on show.
Biosensor platformOn 29 June 2015 the exhibition will open including the printed biosensor under the title Diagnostics and Monitoring Sciences.
The biosensor can be used, for example, to discover and control diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease and cancer and it will cost less than a Euro thanks to the fact that, no bigger than a normal credit card, it is manufactured in printed electronics.

Our integrated biosensor platform is the first printed analysis instrument to be developed,” says Professor Anthony Turner, director of the Linköping Biosensors and Bioelectronics Centre.
Anthony Turner also says that it was an article in Google Science Daily that brought the Swedish technology to the attention of the museum.
The biosensor platform was developed in collaboration between Anthony Turner, his research group at LiU and Acreo Swedish ICT in Norrköping.
