Flexible Electrochemical Nanobiosensors - Bridging Materials and Devices

About this Research Topic

The successful clinical treatment of many severe chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancers and neurological diseases can still be difficult. Early diagnosis and preemptive treatment is essential for their resolution. To this end, electrochemical biosensors, which convert a biochemical process into measurable signals such as electrical signals, can be useful tools in the detection of changes to specific bioactive substances that prompt these diseases. Furthermore, the real-time monitoring and prevention of these diseases through the development and use of flexible and wearable nanobiosensors, has started to gain attention. Nanoscale electrochemical biosensors combine biosensing technology with nanotechnology. They can provide fast detection of these diseases and real-time monitoring of patient status. The use of electroactive nanomaterials, such as conducting polymers, graphene, and carbon nanomaterials, provide a great opportunity and a diversity of choice when fabricating flexible/wearable electrochemical nanobiosensors for use in in situ real-time detection.

This Research Topic aims to highlight recent discoveries in synthesis, modification, and assembly of flexible electroactive nanoelectrodes which can be used as wearable electrochemical biosensors. These nanobiosensors can perform real-time monitoring of bioactive materials, biomolecules, microbes, and the interaction between DNA, RNA, and proteins within cells. In addition, authors are welcome to submit Review and Original Research articles in fields parallel to flexible electroactive nanoelectrodes-based biosensors. Sensor types of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Conducting polymers-based biosensors
• Carbon nanomaterials-based biosensors
• Ophthalmic biosensors
• Skin biosensors
• Hearing biosensors
• Other flexible/wearable biosensors


Keywords: Flexible electrode, Wearable electrode, Electrochemical biosensors, Nanobiosensors


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
