Biosensors Development and Applications

The detection of target analytes on accessible platforms holds significant importance across various domains, including diagnostics, pharmaceutical and food analysis, and environmental monitoring. These platforms, often involving or targeting biological molecules, are collectively referred to as 'biosensors.' The design and functionality of these biosensors can be tailored to achieve unprecedented advancements in terms of affordability, portability, ease of operation, and sensitivity. During this seminar, I will share my prior endeavors related to the development and testing of novel biosensors for healthcare diagnostic purposes. Additionally, I will provide an overview of the potential applications of such devices, with a particular emphasis on the utilization of 3D printing for the construction of multifunctional microfluidic chips for process automation, different biosensing interfaces, and the development of electrochemical probes for electroanalytical protein assays. Furthermore, I will highlight some examples where the developed sensors were applied for cancer diagnostics or used for the assessment of affinity kinetics.
