Cell Adhesion Detection By Robotic Electrochemical Sensing

Nikki Attkisson | Last Updated : October 19, 2022

Scientists and researchers from the Southern University of Science and Technology have developed a new kind of Sensing System. This Sensing System is an intracellular automated Sensing System that can provide increased efficiency to ascertain cellular characteristics.

It will be helpful for better detection of disease and assist in early diagnosis of the same. This measurement is essential to understand the different biochemical processes that operate in the body’s biological system. This new technology will prevent early detection and nondetection of certain fatal diseases. 

What Is The Name Of The Technology? 

The technique is based on Nanopipette. It is helpful for the intracellular detection of different diseases. It is a non-destructive method that can even analyze the functioning of small-sized cells. It is an integrated and consistent technology based on different types of sensors. The sensor has a diameter of 100 nanometers. 

Cell Adhesion Detection By Robotic Electrochemical Sensing

A working electrochemical electrode has been attached at the tip of the device. Even a manipulator has been attached to obtain a visual and graphical representation of the data collected from the internal functioning of the cells. This manipulator rotates with a motion pr 5 nanometres and discharges fluorescent light. It enhances the accuracy of the data collected and correctly detects the diseases inside the cells.

How does the technology work? 

The technology is based on an algorithm. It is responsible for staining the cells and locating all the possible locations to detect diseases. The algorithm moves two specifically focus on the unhealthy cells. The fluorescent light produces a grayscale effect to differentiate between adherent and noncancerous cells. 

The process of detection has been simplified to a great extent with the help of this method. It is based on an auto-focus technology that specifically produces a template to detect the exact location of the carcinogenic cells. Every possible attempt is needed to reduce the internal damage to the cell caused by the algorithm’s structure. The technology was utilized on the zebrafish embryo cell. It effectively calculated the variation inside the cells based on oxygen availability. 

The experiment resembled the conventional screening method for detecting diseases inside the cells. The proper detection of the intracellular processes and the location of cells has made it possible to determine the quantitative and qualitative measurements of the cells. The technology helps detect and subsequently diagnose different reactions within the cells or the cluster of cells. Scientists are now trying to develop a lineage-facing mechanism for detecting genetic disorders so that they do not take a toll on people’s lives.

What is the utility of the research? 

The best contribution of the technology is the analysis of the root cause of the disease apart from detection inside the cells. The sensing mechanism tries to analyze the conditions inside the said that led to the development of a given disorder. Understanding a disease’s causation helps determine the type of treatment required. 

There are hardly any treatments available that provide this information. It also allows better research into the specific causes of diseases. This investigation has assisted medical science in bringing better results. Cell penetration is working to the best efficiency in this regard. This technology has revolutionized the disease detection phenomenon and promoted diagnosis to the next level. 


It can be concluded that renowned Institutions and professionals have acknowledged this particular aspect of the research. The contribution to medical science has promoted better efficiency when it comes to mapping the changes inside the cells so that any abnormal growth can be detected instantly before it gets converted into a serious disorder or disease.
