For small, mobile measuring systems, the energy supply plays a key role. Depending on the application, it may not be possible, undesirable or costly to use a battery or accumulator. Examples of this are special point-of-care tests (POCTs). For single-use tests with electronic evaluation, a battery would limit the storage time and pose a problem for disposal. The remedy is energy-autonomous sensor technology, with which a novel measuring system with demonstrator was developed at IMMS. This is used for the energy-autonomous, quantitative reading of lateral flow assay (LFA) test strips. Near Field Communication (NFC) is used to supply the circuit with energy and to transmit measured values to a smartphone. The measuring system draws all the energy for measurement and communications from the electromagnetic field of a smartphone.
