Is there enough oxygen in my blood?

The Sensor CDT took part in the annual Cambridge Science Festival.

A busy weekend in March 2016 saw around 2000 visitors coming to the Plant and Life Sciences Marquee where staff and students from the Sensor CDT demonstrated their prototype pulse oximeter. The general public, from school children to retired engineers, got an insight into how a sensor works, that is used routinely in clinical environments and in popular fitness monitoring devices.

The Sensor CDT exhibit was part of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology stand, which showcased the wide range of life science research carried out within the department, from spores to nanoparticles, advanced microscopy and health care devices.
