'You come across biological components everywhere - in water, hospitals, industry, farms. Biosensors play a significant role in signaling and monitoring in all kinds of different areas.'

“Measuring something quantitatively and quickly with biosensors is a complex process. The sensor has to be extremely sensitive, and the biochemical and physical components have to function perfectly. A multidisciplinary team of physicists, chemists and biomedical technologists are working on the further development of biosensors; the applications extend far beyond healthcare.”
