The use of nanotechnology, especially nanosensors in healthcare diagnostics



It is exciting to view that, Healthcare companies are looking forward to developing efficient and accurate diagnostics systems using nanotechnology

In effect, the use of nanotechnology, especially nanosensors in healthcare diagnostics, facilitates speeding up of the diagnostics process, thereby complementing the primary goal of diagnostics to identify a medical problem in the shortest span of time.


 A major advantage of using nanosensors for healthcare diagnostics is that they are composed of carbon nanotubes, which are 100,000 times smaller than a strand of hair. This makes it highly convenient for these sensors to be implanted into the body without causing any inconvenience to the patient,” said Chetan Mohan, a lead sensors research analyst at Technavio.
