Biosensors are self-contained analytical devices in which a bioreceptor is integrated with a transducer. The interaction between the bioreceptor and a target analyte generates a signal suitable for analytical purposes. In electrochemical biosensors, a change in the redox state of the biorecognition/analyte system generates a change in an electrochemical quantity which can be monitored by electroanalytical techniques. Electrochemical sensors can be miniaturized using ultramicroelectrodes and nanoelectrodes and their arrays as transducers. These devices are characterized by high specificity and sensitivity and improved detection limits. Biosensors can be used by non-specialist operators at the point of care. For the above reasons, within the frame of the Trans2care project, the Laboratory of Electrochemical Sensors of the University Ca’ Foscari of Venice will collaborate with the project partners to develop electrochemical sensors suitable for specific clinical needs.
