Abstract

The use of a novel low power electromagnetic sensor for real-time detection of lactate in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is investigated. CSF holds key indicators relating to a patient’s future health. A multipurpose sensor platform is currently being developed with the capability to detect the concentration of materials in volumes =1 ml. This paper presents results from a microwave cavity resonator designed and created for this purpose, using varying concentrations of lactate in water. The work demonstrates the feasibility of monitoring bodily fluids in real-time. Such advancements are essential for improved and cost-effective delivery of healthcare services to patients.
