The development and investigation of biosensors for the early and rapid diagnosis of a wide spectrum of diseases to provide significant reductions in mortality and loss of working time as a result of timely treatment is a current challenge in many countries. The active progress in biosensor technology is promoted by the fact that it is an interdisciplinary field exploiting advancements in very diverse areas of knowledge: from physiology to nanotechnology and electronics.
