Some 70 experts on semiconductor nanomaterials-based biosensors will come together in Grenoble on November 6 and 7, 2018. They are all counting on using nanoparticles, nanowire networks, and thin films to provide the electrical detection capabilities needed to develop miniaturized biosensors. Currently, there is only one product leveraging this kind of technology on the market: a diabetes monitoring patch. However, the number of projects underway at R&D labs is growing. The event is being organized by researchers at LMGP, LTM, and IMEP-LaHC. Nanomaterials like silicon, germanium, metal oxides, and graphene will be addressed, as will systems and their applications in healthcare, environmental monitoring, and safety. The challenge going forward will be to manufacture sensitive, robust, easy-to-use biosensors that can communicate with smartphones.
