Applying the Miniaturization Technologies for Biosensor Design


Applying the Miniaturization Technologies for Biosensor Design

Burak Derkus. Biosens Bioelectron. .


Microengineering technologies give us some opportunities in developing high-tech sensing systems that operate with low volumes of samples, integrates one or more laboratory functions on a single substrate, and enables automation. These millimetric sized devices can be produced for only a few dollars, which makes them promising candidates for mass-production. Besides electron beam lithography, stencil lithography, nano-imprint lithography or dip pen lithography, basic photolithography is the technique which is extensively used for the design of microengineered sensing systems. This technique has some advantages such as easy-to-manufacture, do not require expensive instrumentation, and allow creation of lower micron-sized patterns. In this review, it has been focused on three different type of microengineered sensing devices which are developed using micro/nano-patterning techniques, microfluidic technology, and microelectromechanics system based technology.

Keywords: MEMs; Microfluidics; Micropatterning; Microtechnology; Miniaturization; Nanopatterning; Nanotechnology.
