Nanotechnology/Nanosensors for the Detection of Pathogens


Nanotechnology/Nanosensors for the Detection of Pathogens

Raju Ahmed, Mahmuda Nargis, Abu Bin Ihsan

Early and accurate detection of pathogen is an important key to prevent and treat pathogen originated health issues. Conventional diagnostic methods are relatively laborious, time-consuming, costly, and require sophisticated instruments. To overcome the limitations of traditional instruments, nanosensors have emerged as a promising alternative. Due to their easy fabrication, high surface-to-volume ratio, and great biocompatibility, nanosensors have been shown to be an ideal technique for sensing. Herein, we provide an overall impression of the application of different types of nanosensors in disease diagnosis, and in the monitoring of water and food quality along with their probable future orientations.
