Bioelectronics is a recently coined term for a field of research that works to identify the collaboration between electronics and biology. The emerging field of Bioelectronics seeks to exploit biology in conjunction with electronics in a wider context encompassing, for example, biological fuel cells, bionics and biomaterials for information processing, information storage for the underlying physiological processes.
The recording process also involves electronic components and actuators, and relevant experts are invited by the OMICS Publishing Group for the Conference of Biosensors and bioelectronics. A key aspect is the interface between biological materials and micro- and nano-electronics, and experts from relevant domain are invited to the Biosensors conference to interact for knowledge-sharing purpose.
Biosensors are defined as analytical devices incorporating a biological material (e.g. tissue, microorganisms, organelles, cell receptors, enzymes, antibodies, nucleic acids, natural products etc. a biologically derived material like recombinant antibodies, engineered proteins, aptamers or a biomimice.g. synthetic receptors, biomimetic catalysts, combinatorial ligands, imprinted polymers etc. These subjects are discussed at the OMICS Conference of Biosensors in detail through panel presentation and presentations.
The various aspects of biosensors are intimately associated with or integrated within a physicochemical transducer or transducing microsystem, which may be optical, electrochemical, thermometric, piezoelectric, magnetic or micromechanical. The speakers at the OMICS conference meet are called to deliver expert talks in the relevant domain of biosensors and bioelectronics for the scientific community.
Biosensors usually yield a digital electronic signal which is proportional to the concentration of a specific analyte or group of analytes. While the signal may in principle be continuous, devices can be configured to yield single measurements to meet specific market requirements. Examples of Biosensors include immunosensors, enzyme-based biosensors, organism- and whole cell-based biosensors. They have been applied to a wide variety of analytical problems including uses in medicine, biomedical research, drug discovery, the environment, food, process industries, security and defense. Such mechanisms are developed recently and the advances are discussed through panel discussions and presentations at the OMICS Conference of Biosensors and bioelectronics.
Biosensors – bioelectronics focuses on the complementary intersection between molecular recognition, nanotechnology, molecular imprinting and supramolecular chemistry to improve the analytical performance and robustness of devices.
