Korean researchers develop paper-based chip technology to diagnose diseases with smartphones

A personalized medical diagnostic device has been developed for the first time in the world.


It allows you to print a paper-based chip with your printer and diagnose whether you have diabetes, kidney problems and brain diseases using your smartphone.

The National Research Foundation of Korea said, “We have developed a technology that can diagnose blood sugar, kidney and brain diseases at the same time by connecting a paper-based electronic diagnosis chip with a smartphone.” The paper-based electronic diagnosis chip can control electric signals using the printing technology on the paper, instead of the existing silicon substrate, and diagnose and analyze diseases from a medical standpoint.
