Report No. ARL-TR-6372
Authors: Mark A. Mentzer
Date/Pages: March 2013; 18 pages
Abstract: This report describes a molecular biosensor that includes a lipid vesicle and housing wherein the vesicle is contained on or within the housing and where the housing has a portion capable of transmitting a force generated external to the housing to the vesicle. The biosensor detects the presence or absence of an event force, such as a blast or blunt force sufficient to produce a medical complication, such as traumatic brain injury.
