Biosensors: Applications in Industrial Biotechnology

Chemical sensors and biosensors are becoming increasingly indispensable tools in the life science, medical and biotechnology sectors, particularly where accurate and reproducible monitoring and control of processes are required. Within the biotechnology sector, intense pressure to: a) comply with regulatory requirements for process reproducibility; b) achieve consistency in the quality of the end product; and c) manage overall costs has meant that innovative solutions to complement existing approaches are required. This need has, in part, been answered through the development and application of sensor technology to solve industrial problems.

Although, there are a wide variety of different sensors, they are all designed to perform two key tasks; molecular recognition and signal transduction. And, it is the latter task that is typically used to characterise them as either electrochemical, optical, spectroscopic, piezo-electrical or thermal devices. The many reported applications range from the rapid, unequivocal diagnosis of medical conditions like heart attacks used in hospitals to wireless, field-based devices used to monitor environmental samples.

In this conference, the Separation Science and Technology Group (SSTG) has assembled a panel of world renowned experts in sensor technology to present on the latest developments in this new and exciting area of science. The panel will discuss their own work covering such areas as development of innovative nanotechnology methods, fabrication of sensors using state-of-the-art materials, applications of optical, micro-fluidic chemical and biological sensors to monitor and control industrial processes.

This conference should benefit process technologists, novice scientists and experts alike who are keen to hear the latest developments from leading authorities in the development and application of sensors technology.
