Electrochemical biosensors' significance in diagnostics is undeniable. Indeed, at the current rate of development, they are expected to play an integral part in bioelectronic devices in the not-too-distant future. These devices would not only begin to mimic primitive models of life itself but also offer the possibility of housing entire diagnostics laboratories inside miniaturised, multifunctional, intelligent, and wearable gadgets.
The significant boost in the performance of these biosensors comes with nanomaterials, which have entirely revolutionised the biosensors' operating domains and expanded their reach from hospitals or labs to personal health-care devices and natural environments, enabling accurate multimodal testing.
Needless to say, surface engineering, in conjunction with a wide variety of nanomaterials, is a powerful toolbox that may be used to develop low-cost, high-performance and sophisticated biosensors that meet the demands of today's modern and rapidly evolving society. In the case of biosensors, engineered nanomaterials offer a great deal of surface-modification convenience for the incorporation of specific biomolecules that enable tunable biorecognition. Conversely, the diversity of their chemical composition and their modifiable structural or morphological characteristics provide greater control over single production and analytical reliability.
Conventional electrochemical biosensors rely on electrode material's capability to detect target molecules. However, recent advancements now allow for the easy fabrication of functional nanomaterial integrated electrodes with improved biosensing capabilities owing to the synergism of nanomaterials’ catalytic activity, conductivity, and surface functionality with the ease of installing specific signal tags for improved signal selectivity towards target molecules of a varieed nature, ranging from biomolecules to environmental toxins.
Electrochemical, amperometric, electrochemical impedance, electrochemical luminescence, and photoelectrochemical sensors are just a few examples of the many types of sensory platforms that could be developed using a diverse compositional variety of nanomaterials and improved recognition components. Based on their simple design, economic feasibility, portability, and, most importantly, simple operability, these sensors have not only expanded the application scope of biosensors but also opened up a new avenue for engineering an integrated platform that can selectively detect any biological targets based on the electrochemical change in electrode interfaces.
In this Special Issue of Biosensors, entitled Electrochemical Biosensing Platform Based on Nanomaterials, we aim to bring together scientists from diverse areas of the study of integrated technology to develop new, novel and practical engineering-based electrochemical platforms with promising potential as electrochemical biosensors. The Issue will feature the most recent and cutting-edge integrated technologies pertaining to material engineering and the detection aspect of electrochemical biosensors and their applications in, but not limited to, the analytical detection of clinical, pharmaceutical, and biological targets.
We strongly encourage researchers in a variety of fields to submit original research articles, communications, and reviews on electrochemical biosensors' design, manufacturing, and analytical aspects.
