Rapid detection of brain disorder using new dopamine sensor

Updated: 20 March 2019

A rapid dopamine detector has been developed by researchers of University of Central Florida which could assist in detection of brain conditions such as depression and Parkinson’s disorder. These disorders are associated with low levels of chemical dopamine. However, high dopamine levels are associated with several tumors which can be detected using new sensors.

The current approaches demand specialized laboratory equipments, sample preparation and are time-consuming. Dopamine monitoring helps in dose adjustments which are required to get the effective treatment. Only few blood drops are required in this latest palm-sized sensor which can deliver results in few minutes and requires no lab to process sample.

Separation of plasma from blood is done with chip present in sensor and dopamine levels are selectively captured using cerium oxide nanoparticles.
