The importance of nanotechnology and chemistry in the development of biosensors.
The use of biosensors is increasingly popular in fundamental biological studies, health science research, drug discovery and clinical diagnosis. Biosensors preferably allow for a quantitative measurement of biomolecular interactions in real-time without requiring a labeling procedure. Today, the focus is geared towards the design of small, low-cost, stable and sensitive biosensor systems. This imposes severe demands on the applied (bio)chemistry, the type of physico-chemical transducer and the integration of both parts into a lab-on-a-chip platform. In this talk, we will highlight the importance of nanotechnology and suitable chemistry in the development of such biosensor systems.Location: UHasselt, Campus Diepenbeek, Agoralaan, gebouw D, Auditorium H3
