Biosensors & Bioelectronics

Content available at:

Biosensors & Bioelectronics is the principal international journal devoted
to research, design, development and application of biosensors and
bioelectronics. It is an interdisciplinary journal serving professionals
with an interest in the exploitation of biological materials in novel
diagnostic and electronic devices. Biosensors are defined as analytical
devices incoporating a biological material (e.g. tissue, microorganisms,
organelles, cell receptors, enzymes, antibodies, nucleic acids etc.), a
biologically derived material or a biomimic intimately associated with or
integrated within a physicochemical transducer or transducing microsystem,
which may be optical, electrochemical, thermometric, piezoelectric or
magnetic. 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. Biosensors have been applied to a wide variety of analytical
problems including in medicine, the environment, food, process industries,
security and defence. The emerging field of Bioelectronics seeks to exploit
biology in conjuction with electronics in a wider context encompassing, for
example, biomaterials for information processing, information storage and
actuators. A key aspect is the interface between biological materials and
electronics. While endeavouring to maintain coherence in the scope of the
journal, the editors will accept reviews and papers of obvious relevance to
the community, which describe important new concepts, underpin understanding
of the field or provide important insights into the practical application of
biosensors and bioelectronics.

Biotechnologists, biochemists, bioelectrochemists, analytical chemists,
chemical engineers, electronic engineers.
