SIC attends the Trace Analysis and Biosensor International Symposium I, PSUsixma
SIC had been invited to attend and give a special talk in the Trace Analysis and Biosensor International Symposium I (https://www.tab-coe-psu.com/) during 10 – 11 Feb 2020 at the Prince of Songkla University, Hat Yai, Thailand. The theme of the symposium was “Emerging Challenges and Opportunities” which covered the topics of techniques in trace analysis, sample preparation, chromatography, optical sensors, biosensors, electrochemical sensors, and related topics. There were several well-known Thai and international researchers sharing their success research studies through the invited talks.
Mr. Thaweesak Thantipwan, CPO, and Dr. Amorn Jiraseree-amornkun, Principal Research Engineer, were representative from SIC to present the topic “NFC-Smartphone-based electrochemical-sensor interfacing platform.” This is a great opportunity to share the SIC’s vision of employing the Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology, ubiquitously embedded in smartphones, and miniaturizing necessary electrochemical-sensing circuits in a microchip, to perform the new emerging testing device that can be leveraged to consumer product scale at an affordable cost. It is a potential solution to deal with service insufficiency in an aging society trend, in which greatly increasing cost and lacking physicians are prime issues. The home diagnostic Point-of-Care-Testing (POCT) devices based on this NFC platform with a specific biosensor could play a vital role and allow consumers to instantly access the service anywhere and anytime that once was performed only in central laboratories by trained laboratory technicians.
