Conclusion and Outlook
In retrospect, this book firstly reviewed recent CMOS biosensors for in vitro diagnosis according to their transducing mechanisms (Chap. 2). Among these, NMR-based detection is a promising transducing mechanism as it averts complex post-processing on the CMOS chip and surface modification process to immobilize the probe. Still, there exist some challenges such as magnetic field instability and arduous sample management inside the space-limiting magnet. Thus, the essences of the researches around this book are to implement the NMR system on CMOS chips and streamline the experimental procedure.
