Biosensors - Working at the Intersection of Engineering and the Sciences
Biosensors are increasingly used in
environmental applications, especially for water quality monitoring.
This is because the availability of safe drinking water is fundamental to our good health.
However, as water resources get increasingly stressed, ensuring a safe water supply and
effective water treatment becomes increasingly important. In addition, waterborne illnesses are a significant public health problem.
At the same time, current monitoring of microbiological contamination of water currently is time-consuming, laboratory based,
and frequently compromises the timeliness of health advisory warnings even when contamination is found.
Therefore, rapid detection of unsafe water can contribute greatly to mitigating the morbidity and mortality
associated with waterborne diseases due to microbiological contaminants.
Fortunately, the research community has shown increasing interest in the development of microtechnology
-based sensors for the detection and identification of the bio-contaminants.
These sensing systems use the same fabrication technology that has enabled the drastic lowering of cost,
exponential increase in complexity of electronic chips and widespread availability of computing resources.
In this presentation, we discuss a low-cost, electrical, label-free microfabricated biosensor
that we are developing for pathogen detection related to water quality and also for ubiquitous-healthcare applications.
The use of nanodimensions devices to create futuristic nano-biosensors for both environmental and health applications will be introduced.
And we will also describe our ongoing work to create highly integrated and parallel detection systems by integrating the sensor,
the processing electronics and the pre-processing stages on the same cheap substrate.
Finally, the success of such a low-cost, highly integrated sensing system demands a convergence of expertise from various engineering disciplines,
the physical and life sciences as well as public health.
