Abstract:

This report describes a molecular biosensor that includes a lipid vesicle and housing wherein the vesicle is contained on orwithin 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.
