Summary
The treatment of numerous diseases could be improved  by monitoring the blood concentration of disease-relevant metabolites at the point-of-care (POC), ideally even by the patient. Therefore we have developed a biosensor for the accurate quantification of metabolites in small blood samples obtained from a simple finger prick. This biosensor could become an important tool for the diagnosis and management of various diseases.
