Over the last two decades, the sphere of biosensor examine have had an important impression in either laboratory study and the industrial quarter. Over that interval, biosensors have revolutionised the care and administration of diabetes and feature had vital affects in numerous different components of medical diagnostics. Europe, North the USA and Asia-Pacific have all obvious the increase of small and medium sized businesses looking technical and alertness niches within the manufacture or use of biosensors. the present job in either gene and protein 'biochips' will be obvious because the most modern set of instruments that permit clients who're now not analytical technological know-how practitioners to make technically advanced and trustworthy measurements with the minimal of intervention. equally the worry concerning the dissemination of chemical or organic guns and the necessity for his or her quick and trustworthy detection might want to be met by means of units that experience many features in universal with biosensors.

16 nl/drop) that are determined by the stepping resolution of the syringe pump (driven by a high resolution stepper motor) and synchronizing the stepper increments with the opening and closing of the solenoid valve. This state-of-the-art device provides non-contact dispensing of individual drops, which are quantitatively defined in either line or dot formats. Figure 3 shows the ink jet nozzle with a group of screen-printed electrodes on the substrate board. 3 Printing patterns The sensor may be a three-electrode (working electrode, counter electrode, and reference electrode) or a two-electrode configuration (without counter electrode).

The cost of the substrate is also a consideration because the sensor is a "one-shot" or disposable measuring device. Some materials have been exploited for this purpose. PVC, which features dielectric properties, chemical inertness, low cost, and workability, is the most commonly used substrate (14-18). Ceramic (aluminum oxide, A12O3) is also frequently used for its excellent properties such as strength, hardness, heat resistance, and corrosion resistance (19-21). Other possible materials are polycarbonate (22, 23), nitrocellulose (24), and glass fiber (25).
