Advanced Biosensors for Health Care Applications highlights the different types of prognostic and diagnostic biomarkers associated with cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, brain and retinal diseases, cardiovascular diseases, bacterial infections, and other electrochemical biosensor techniques used for the early detection of specific diseases. As recent developments on the nanoscale for biomedical diagnosis devices continues to grow and expand into new markets, this book describes the need for novel strategies for developing a new class of assay systems that operate in real-time, also discussing the selection of sensor components and the operational parameters for each efficient sensing platform.

Recent studies reported that there are several diagnostic methods available, but the major issue is the sensitivity and selectivity of these approaches. Biosensors are shown to be superior tools due to their proven high sensitivity and selectivity. Therefore, this book explores the potential of nano-multidisciplinary science to design and develop smart sensing technology using micro-nano electrodes, novel sensing materials, integration with MEMS, miniaturized transduction systems, novel sensing strategy i.e., FET, CMOS, System-on-a-Chip (SoC), Diagnostic-on-a-Chip (DoC), and Lab-on-a-chip (LOC), for diagnostics and personalized health care monitoring.
