Dr. Gajendra Shekhawat and Prof. Vinayak Dravid, using the instruments of NUANCE, developed the MOSFET-embedded Micro cantilever based Integrated sensor technology for real-time detection of analytes under physiological conditions, which is an integral part of this handheld device development for medical diagnostics and personalized medicine.
