Biosensors for Detecting Imbalances of Life Systems: Role of Materials and Methods in Improved Outcome

Any deviation or imbalance from homeostatic state of steady internal physical and chemical conditions in living systems, generally falls under category of disease. Chances of bringing them back to normalcy or closer to healthier state with therapeutic interventions are found to be more successful when they are applied at very early stage. Biosensing has emerged as a process to achieve early detection of deviations in such homeostatic states via evaluation of physiological, chemical, or biomolecular parameters in the subjects. The two main components on which efficiency of biosensors rely are materials used as platform technology and methods of detection used for the task. In this issue we will be assembling recent advancements in the field of Biosensors in terms of used materials and methods in achieving high sensitivity, specificity and predictability in form of original research.
