Special Issue Information

Probing in micro world using electrochemical microsensors, progress and challenge will be covered in this special issue. Electrochemical microsensors have been studied for the last 3 decades as highly sensitive and selective yet relatively inexpensive device to probe micro world for applications ranging from chemical and biological sensing to clinical and medical care. This wide range of applications is due to electrochemical microsensors high sensitivity, selectivity, fast response time and low manufacture cost. In this special issue different electrochemical sensors and their applications will be described.

This work presents a new approach with details on the integrated platform and hardware architecture for nanorobots application in epidemic control, which should enable real time in vivo prognosis of biohazard infection. The recent developments in the field of nanoelectronics, with transducers progressively shrinking down to smaller sizes through nanotechnology and carbon nanotubes, are expected to result in innovative biomedical instrumentation possibilities, with new therapies and efficient diagnosis methodologies. The use of integrated systems, smart biosensors, and programmable nanodevices are advancing nanoelectronics, enabling the progressive research and development of molecular machines. It should provide high precision pervasive biomedical monitoring with real time data transmission. The use of nanobioelectronics as embedded systems is the natural pathway towards manufacturing methodology to achieve nanorobot applications out of laboratories sooner as possible. To demonstrate the practical application of medical nanorobotics, a 3D simulation based on clinical data addresses how to integrate communication with nanorobots using RFID, mobile phones, and satellites, applied to long distance ubiquitous surveillance and health monitoring for troops in conflict zones. Therefore, the current model can also be used to prevent and save a population against the case of some targeted epidemic disease. Full article
