Point-of-care (PoC) devices refer to portable and affordable diagnosing systems, mostly used in the field of healthcare. PoCs have garnered interest, particularly for detecting diseases that require multiple diagnostic tests and in resource-limited areas. Recently, major disease outbreaks have pushed the development of PoCs that can be easily used without the need for special expertise and without complex sample processing. Thus, developing miniaturized platforms capable of providing timely diagnosis is paramount. In this talk, I will cover the basic principles of PoCs circuit interface and instrumentation, discussing how we can develop platforms to process sensing data directly at the edge.

Brief Biography
