Cover Story (view full-size image): Malaria is a disease transmitted by the adult female Anopheles mosquito and is caused by the Apicomplexan Plasmodium parasite. Four species of Plasmodium are responsible for human malaria, but P. falciparum malaria is known to be the most lethal. Malaria, is transmitted easily and can claim the lives of some of its victims, with expectant mothers and children under the age of five being the most vulnerable to the disease. To date, different tests have been developed for the detection of malaria biomarkers, but they all have limitations which include being expensive, time consuming or lacking sensitivity and specificity. Hence, the development of biosensors for malaria detection can help to overcome some of the known limitations in malaria diagnosis. View this paper
