Toxicity assessment of wearable wound sensor constituents on keratinocytes

Posted by on 8.1.19 in Research

Link This research reports on the cytotoxicity of materials present in a wound biosensor on human keratinocytes (HaCaT) to evaluate the biocompatibility of the sensor for continuous wound monitoring applications. Individual and collective effects of the sensor materials, gold (Au) and silver (Ag) nanoparticles (NPs), uricase enzyme (UOx), ferrocene carboxylic acid (FCA), multi-walled carbon nanotubes […]
