Yes, I agree. They probably are telling us how much more time they need to do the preliminary lab work before potential commercialization, which as you say, could take much longer (especially if they need regulatory approval from FDA, etc.)

Different antibodies can functionalize the sensor for detecting different things. The inventors only discuss detecting specific maladies, but potentially a whole variety could be screened simultaneously.

2 years till it is available commercially? I admire their optimism but not their hold onto reality. Medical product, new technology, 2 years .... seems very very unlikely. Microfluidic detectors have been 2 years away from commercialization for at least 6-7 years. I have yet to see one in my doctor's office. I think they have some great technology and it is certainly worthy of being available. I just highly doubt the final product development and all the necessary testing and approvals will be ready in that period of time. Semiman

Excellent two years to market, virus detection as well - does it have to be made special for each type of thing it is to detect or is it simply a receiver and some other device translates ? Maybe next up - they will be able to do it with out blood - breath, or simply a light wave...

After GreenTech, this is the tech of the future. I am very certain that microfludics could be disruptive.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
