Electrochemical based biosensors have been used extensively in various laboratory, clinical, home care, and point-of-care applications. Nano-catalysts, microfabrication manufacturing processing, the advancement of computer sciences and electronic technology, as well as the identification of newly discovered biomarkers have led the advancement of electrochemical based biosensors to new dimensions.
This special issue invites contributions particularly relating to application-oriented electrochemical based biosensors using innovative development techniques. Examples of application areas include, but are not limited to, different methods of electrochemical detection which can be applied to useful biosensing applications. Many enzymatic reactions produce electrochemically active species such as H2O2, NADH and others which can be used as a foundation to monitor various analytes (biomarkers). Microfabrication processing, including thick- and thin-film techniques, are often employed in the fabrication of biosensor prototypes, and the electrochemical-based biosensors that are produced provide new means in biosensing. Extension of these biosensors to real time, single use, disposable point of care biosensors and minute in vivo biosensors will be of interest to the readers of this special issue.
