Military-funded researcher creates biochip to detect traumatic injuries

A military-funded researcher has designed an implantable biochip that can detect trauma-induced hemorrhages, a new patent application reveals.

Created by bioengineering and computer engineering researcher Anthony Guiseppi-Elie, the invention could open up ways to remotely monitor soldiers on a battlefield, a research abstract suggests. Blast-induced traumatic brain injuries can be difficult to detect, causing combat veterans suffering from them to go untreated.

Guiseppi-Elie had invented a way to implant a biocompatible biosensor and transmitter device intramuscularly in a person. The device can measure lactic acid levels and glucose levels in the body, which have been correlated with severity of post-traumatic injuries.

    MIT Technology Review: Flash Storage As a Strategic IT Asset For the first time in decades, IT leaders now consider all-flash storage as a strategic IT asset. IT has become a new operating model that enables self-service with high performance, density and resiliency. It also offers the self-service agility of the public cloud combined with the security, performance, and cost-effectiveness of a private cloud. Download this MIT Technology Review paper to learn more about how all-flash storage is transforming the data center.
