Turning biosensors into consumer products
2013 (English)In: Advances in Biodetection and Biosensors, 2013, Select Biosciences , 2013Conference paper, Abstract (Other academic)
We can expect to see an ever increasing range of inexpensive diagnostic tools available over the counter. Consumer applications for personal health maintenance, food quality and safety, and for environmental monitoring will become available, along with wearable and implantable devices. New possibilities exist for fully intergrated, printed devices rivalling the cost and simplicity of the RFID tag. Sensors built into electrospun fibres could result in smart clothing, while more advanced versions might facilitate regenerative medicine, with sensing functions built into tissue scaffolds to monitor and possibly control the performance of implants. Finally, technology permiting, the marketeer’s dream of instant non-invasive diagnostics might become a reality.
