Ingestible sensor studies gut bacteria

ga('send', 'event', 'Uncategorized', 'article', 'article-industry-impression', {nonInteraction: true});

Recent research has begun to shed light on the relationship between the bacteria in our gut (the microbiome) and various illnesses. Now, a new ‘pill’ has completed development that could allow scientists to better study gut health. The ‘pill’, which was developed by researchers at RMIT and Monash Universities, is actually a swallowable capsule containing gas sensors, a microprocessor and a wireless high-frequency transmitter. The sensors can measure the concentration of intestinal gases. These gases, given off by gut bacteria, contain valuable insight on the condition of various bacteria in the gut. According to lead investigator, RMIT’s Professor Kourosh Kalantar-Zadeh,…
