Paper-based nanobiosensors for diagnostics

Claudio Parolo, Arben Merkoçi. Chem. Soc. Rev., 2013, 42, 450 - 457

In this review we discuss how nanomaterials can be integrated in diagnostic paper-based biosensors for the detection of proteins, nucleic acids and cells. In particular first the different types and properties of paper-based nanobiosensors and nanomaterials are briefly explained. Then several examples of their application in diagnostics of several biomarkers are reported. Finally our opinions regarding future trends in this field are discussed.
