Application of microelectronic fabrication techniques for the development of biosensors

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Potential applications of biosensors for process control, clinical laboratories, the food industry, and environmental and health care monitoring present a significant scientific and commercial challenge. Microelectronic fabrication techniques, such as photolithographic reduction, thick and thin-film metallization, and chemical and plasma etch, are proven technology that can be applied to the development of biosensors. It is concluded that, in combination with proper immobilization of biomolecules, membrane technology, computer and microprocessing hardware and software, etc., microelectronic fabrication provides a feasible approach to practical biosensors.
