A SENSOR TO IDENTIFY pH OF BLOOD



pH sensor

A TINY BLOOD pH SENSOR DEVELOPED BY INDIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, KHARAGHPUR students



IIT Kharagpur researchers have successfully developed tiny device to measure the pH of blood.  The device works by measuring the imedance.  The device relies on venous blood sampling for pH measurement. 

The pH of a solution is a measure of the percentage  of hydrogen ions  available in a solution.  The solution is said to be  acidic, if  the pH will be less than 7.  The device was able to detect the pH of the blood in 10 seconds.
