MelaFind Optical Scanner

Melanoma is the most deadly type of skin cancer. Previously, it was impossible to differentiate between moles that were harmful from the ones that weren't, without an invasive surgical biopsy.

Thanks to the MelaFind Optical Scanner, dermatologists have now at their disposal a handheld tool that can carry out a multispectral analysis of tissue morphology. The ultimate goal of the device is to reduce the number of patients that are left with needless scars as a result of the biopsy.

 

 

 

 

Transdermal Biosensor

A transdermal biosensor is currently under production at Echo Therapeutics with the aim of providing a needle-free solution for diabetic patients. The sensor will be able to read blood analytes through the skin without the need of drawing any blood at all. A small handheld electric toothbrush-like device functions by removing some of the top-layer skin to bring the blood chemistry within the range of the sensor.

The sensor is capable of collecting a reading every minute and can send the data to a remote monitor. It can also trigger alarms whenever glucose levels are exceeded beyond optimal range.
