4th International Conference on Bio-Sensing Technology

10 May 2015 - 13 May 2015 - Lisbon, Portugal



Bookmark and Share


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 3 conferences, the 4th 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. Themes The major features required to develop a commercially successful bio-sensing technology are represented in the five themes of the conference. The scope and area of the invited talks in each theme is given below: 1. Novel biomarkers This theme will cover the discovery of new biological molecules for bio-sensing applications, for example new disease markers that can be used as a target for applications such as rapid diagnostics. 2. Biosensor surfaces This focuses on the immobilisation and stabilisation of biological molecules on a sensor surface; this could include novel bio-reactive surfaces such as nano-patterned surfaces, whole cells, novel proteins and nucleic acids. For example, novel molecules integrated with silicon components at the micron and nano-scales. Methods of patterning surfaces and depositing biological molecules will be covered. 3. Novel detection technologies To cover 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. 4. Instrumentation and Integration 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. This could include technical interfacing challenges such as sample introduction and handling. 5. Commercialisation and impact This theme will focus on new integrated bio-sensing systems which are close to being, or have been commercialised. To cover hurdles to commercialisation and the impact the technology has on society and markets.
