New Technique Uses Electrical Conductivity to Measure Blood in Dry Blood Spot Analysis
July 20, 2016
Science Newsline - Researchers from The University of Texas at Arlington have demonstrated
that electrical conductivity can be an effective means to precisely measure the amount
of blood present in dry blood spot analysis, providing a new alternative to the current
preferred approach of measuring sodium levels.
Dasgupta and his co-author Jordan Berg, professor of mechanical engineering at Texas
Tech University and co-director of the Nano Tech Center, published their findings,
"Evaluation of the amount of blood in dry blood spots: ring-disk electrode conductometry,"
in Analytical Chemistry.
