LUISA 200

 

PLATINUM OVERALL WINNER
LUISA TORSI OF ITALY FOR HER MEDICAL DIAGNOSTIC DEVICE – 

Luisa Torsi from Italy wins European Woman Inventor of the Year with Medical Diagnostic Device. She is the inventor of a ground-breaking electronic circuit which can be printed on plastic or paper to become a biological sensor. The pioneering medical breakthrough is low-cost, disposable, non-invasive and outperforms other biological sensing technology. Luisa, an academic from the University of Bari Aldo Moro, said her invention would revolutionise point of care diagnostics.  She said: “Nowadays, if you run a blood strip test, you have to assess the output through an analysis in a laboratory or clinic. “With this device you can skip that step because the quality of the data is immediately good enough to use for diagnostic purposes. “On top of all this, it has the potential of being non-invasive because saliva can be used instead of blood serum and the circuit can detect very low concentrations of bio-markers.”
