Title: Device Diagnosing Health of Bovine


The research problem taken into consideration for study dealt with the design of a low cost hand-held ZnO based sensing device for testing blood serum of bovine (cow) to diagnose their health of liver and kidney by detecting four biological parameters in-situ. Zinc oxide nanoparticles were synthesized by chemical bath deposition method. Using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD), the size of ZnO nanoparticles were determined. It shows a hexagonal wurtzite structure with an orientation along the direction (101) . TEM images show various morphological changes of nanostructured ZnO. The average crystallite sizes of ZnO molecule is found to be 0.004 nm from XRD. The constituents of nano sized ZnO are found to be of Zn (57.27%), Cl (33.01%), C (8.04%) and O (1.68%) as obtained from EDS. The samples of blood serum of bovine are characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Benesphera Avantor Performance (Biochemistry Analyzer).

ZnO based sensing device is designed with the help of Arduino and Microsoft visual basic 6.0 version software. The resistance of blood serum is taken into consideration for carrying out the experiment. It has been measured after adding ZnO (1µl) to blood serum of (1ml) to detect four biological parameters – Serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase (SGPT), Serum glutamic- oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT), Blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine of bovine more precisely. The device can indicate whether the blood serum of bovine have normal/diseased parameters. This device will also help the veterinarians in the field.
