Abstract

The clinical diagnostic market represents a unique opportunity for the introduction of biosensors on a widespread commercial basis. To date, however, very few successful biosensors have been launched in this field or any other, despite many promising ideas. The need for biosensors in this field must be analyzed more critically, to assess in which direction the developing biosensor technology can be most effectively aimed and which areas need a more focused approach from basic research in bioelectronics. The diagnostics market is already a highly competitive field; from an industrial perspective, some of the critical issues that need to be taken into consideration when evaluating biosensor projects are: costs per test, regulatory requirements, quality control, instrumentation design, and test parameter selection.
