Turning a sensor into a probe

At ZP we have built a probe adaptor for our sensors, so that our sensors can be placed into the sample. Please see our video to find out more.

World’s first commercial wearable oxidative stress sensor – alternative to cortisol sensor

At ZP we are frequently asked ‘can you develop and manufacture a cortisol sensor?’, and the answer is yes, the next question is ‘ can you develop and manufacture a wearable cortisol sensor?’, and the answer is yes, but at ZP we have enough experience to understand what can be quickly achieved and manufactured and what is harder and will require more investment. When people specifically ask us for a cortisol sensor they are really asking us for a stress sensor. At ZP we are able to advise that there a a few ways to monitor stress that are correlated to stress and cortisol, but are more robust and scalable in manufacturing. Find out more here.

Crossing two chasms on the way to the market

ZP is speaking and exhibiting at the C3Bio conference, please come and meet us there.

Crossing two chasms to get to the sensor market:
Biosensors, Bioelectronics and Biodevices are nearly always developed to be practical devices to solve real world problems, the problem is there are two chasms one can fall into on the way to market success. The first chasm is between academic research and products on the market, and when one makes it to the market there is a second chasm between the enthusiastic early adopters and the cautious mainstream market.
To solve any problem, we must first identify it and the root causes and then we can discuss solutions. In this talk/discussion we layout the problems and the solutions.
