NYU-Poly Professor Among First Winners of BioAccelerate NYC Prize; Project May Move Diagnostic Medicine from the Lab to the Palm of a Hand
Date:5/3/2010

Uniting experts in polymer chemistry, electrical engineering and medical research, Dr. Levon has conceptualized a handheld, point-of-care device to detect infectious diseases using a patented floating gate field effect transistor (FGFET) biosensor.

This cost-effective biosensor utilizes readily available MOS transistors coated with a conductive polymer. When in contact with a small sample of body fluid, the polymer detects biological and chemical binding reactions with a high degree of sensitivity, translating these signals into electrical signals. A light on the device would indicate a positive or negative test result.  Due to small size, easy interpretation of results and low sample volume required, a technician with basic training could utilize the device in any clinical setting, no matter how rudimentary, anywhere in the world.

This field of study, known as organic electronics, has been applied to diagnostic techniques in research and academia for a decade, but Dr. Levon's team is the first to conceive a commercial application utilizing this technology.

"Our goal at NYU-Poly is to transform research outcomes into applications that solve 21st century problems," said NYU-Poly Provost Dr. Dianne Rekow. "Dr. Levon's work is an ideal example of our core philosophy, i-squared-e -- invention, innovation and entrepreneurship -- come to life. We salute the city for its support of a project that could benefit healthcare systems worldwide."

The BioAccelerate grant will facilitate the development of a complete prototype, created in partnership with The Brooklyn Hospital. The pilot will focus on chlamydia and gonorrhea detection, but the technique could be applied to any infectious disease, including H1N1 or HIV.

Previous lab tests proved the FGFET biosensor's efficac
