Bio-sensing technologies are of increasing importance in healthcare, agri-food, environmental and security sectors, and this is reflected in the continued growth of global markets for such technologies. This two and a half day Conference will provide a forum for accessing to the most up-to-date and authoritative knowledge from both commercial and academic worlds, sharing best practice in the field as well as learning about case studies of successfully integrated bio-sensing technologies. The meeting will provide an opportunity to highlight recent developments and to identify emerging and future areas of growth in this exciting field.
Following the success of the first 2 conferences, the 3rd International Conference on Bio-Sensing Technology will continue to bring together leaders from industry and academia to exchange and share their experiences, present research results, explore collaborations and to spark new ideas, with the aim of developing new projects and exploiting new technology for bio-sensing applications.
The conference will include:
The four sessions of the conference will be:
|Development and discovery of new biological molecules and systems for integration in bio-sensing applications. For example, novel molecules integrated with silicon components at the micron and nano-scales; biological targets for sensing technologies, for example new disease markers that can be used as a target for applications such as rapid diagnostics. The use of biomarkers also includes aspects of immobilization and stabilization.|
|2. Sensor technology|
|Novel sensing technologies developed for bio-sensing applications including optical, electrochemical, piezoelectric or magnetic measurements; novel sensors for bio-imaging. Micro and nano fabrication technologies used to develop and manufacture bio/sensors.|
|3. Instrumentation and data processing|
|Challenges associated with measuring signals generated by biosensor technologies to enable the utilization of bio-sensing systems. Potential solutions relating to the development of new instrumentation, signal and image processing, data analysis and communications.|
|4. System Integration|
|Issues associated with integrating technologies to produce a working bio-sensing system. This could include technical interfacing challenges such as sample introduction and handling through to aspects of commercialisation and adoption of bio-sensing technology into chosen markets.|
In the poster session forum selected poster presenters will be invited to provide a brief oral review of their poster. Presenters will be selected to cover topical themes reflecting one aspect of novel technologies that could be impinge on future commercial markets. This will then provide the introduction for a debate between representatives from the academia, industry and government and other bodies.
