The need for early-stage disease diagnostics to manage targeted diseases and determine timely therapeutics has raised the demand for smart advanced analytical diagnostics tools. Advancements in materials and electronics have enabled the development of efficient biosensors for the detection of biomarkers at desired levels and ranges. Such developed biosensors have served as potential analytical tools for real-time monitoring of bio-markers to generate the bio-informatics needed for disease monitoring and to understand the epidemic and progression under therapy to optimize timely treatment. The integration of biosensing platforms with micro-electronics and interfacing them with smartphones have made early-stage disease diagnostics possible at a point-of-care (POC) application. In spite of numerous advancements in smart biosensing, efforts are being continuously made to develop cost-effective next-generation biosensors with reduced form factors for better health wellness.
Keeping the advancements, challenges, and future prospects in mind, this Special Issue of Sensors entitled "Point-of-Care Sensing Devices" focuses on fundamental and applied research in order to develop biosensors for POC application. This Special Issue invites mini reviews, reviews, letters, and research articles related to the field of nanotechnology, advanced functional sensing materials, numerical simulations, advancements in transduction, miniaturized sensing system development, and the internet of things (IoT). Technological advancement in signal amplification and developments in optical, electrical, magnetic, and physical sensing strategies to fabricate an efficient sensing system are also covered in this issue.
This Special Issue will serve as a guideline to scientists who are planning to conduct research in the area of designing and developing a miniaturized sensing system at POC application for personalized health care.
