Ruby is an enabling technology research project linked to spearhead project Diamond. In order to enable a major leap in connected wellness and diagnostic monitoring, Ruby addresses two main topics:
1) Transfer from indicative single analyte tests to quantitative multiplexed
2) Low-cost integration of connectivity electronics into plastic platforms while
maintaining high performance.
Ruby aims to develop wearable diagnostics for sweat-related biomarkers and to improve RF properties in wearable devices via means of material selection and development of fabrication method. Ruby approach includes lot of computing by means of developing algorithms and simulation models. These methods are also tested in practice for example by fabricating demonstrators and carrying out measurements.
