Takahashi Kazuhiro

Enabling disease diagnosis and viral detection with ultra-sensitive microsensors

Takahashi Kazuhiro

Electronics-Inspired Interdisciplinary Research Institute


Professor Kazuhiro Takahashi is working on the development of ultra-compact biosensors that can be used to diagnose diseases, and more. What makes these sensors special is the use of optical interference to measure mechanical changes that occur when the substance to be measured is absorbed onto a suspended thin film on a microchip. The sensors will enable cancer screening, virus detection, and other functions to be performed by the compact device with a high level of sensitivity as well as with ease. In addition, Professor Takahashi is seeking to apply this mechanism to the development of devices that can detect virus particles in the air.
