Abstract

Analysis of blood substances such as hemoglobin, glucose, protein, cholesterol, etc. are important parameters for health condition monitoring. Traditionally, blood sample is taken and analyzed under a microscope. Some chemical process such as enzyme reaction is required before the final value for concentration is read. Reagents involved in such processes are expensive for both the hospital and patient. For many decades scientists have recognized the power of incorporating biological principles and molecules into the design of artificial devices. Biosensors, an amalgamation of signal transducers and bio components play a prominent role in medicine.The RBC countand Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC) in human blood is measured and analyzed using biosensor very effectively. This investigation helps in ruling out the diseases like anemia, hereditary spherocytosis and Sickle Cell Anemia (SCA).The portable smart biosensor measurement system, with Advanced RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computing) Machine processor has been designed to determine the RBC countand MCHC concentration in the blood. The Graphical User Interface (GUI) developed in VB.net is to store the data for future analysis.
