A2Biosensor: Point-of-Care Ascorbic Acid Sensing for Anterior Penetrating Ocular Globe Injuries


Researchers have developed a point-of care device that can detect a penetrating ocular globe injury. Unlike current detection methods that require optical equipment like slip lamp biomicroscopes or other heavy machines, this technology allows for a faster, cheaper, and more mobile means of diagnosing certain eye injuries by making use of differential ascorbic acid concentrations in different parts of the eye.
