Biosensor: Recent Advances and Potential in Biomedical Applications

Saima Rafique


A powerful and innovative device used for detection of biological elements is referred as “biosensor”. It gives useful information whether or not the analyte is present and at what level is transduced into an electrical signal that can be amplified, displaced and analyzed. In medicine, biosensor can be used to measure glucose [1], diagnosis pathogenic/cancer disease [2], biomedicine and drug delivery applications [3].
