Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Electrochemical sensors are widely used to monitor biomolecules. However, limitations in sensor geometry have restricted the scope of currently used electrochemical sensors. 3D-printing has emerged as a promising manufacturing approach, to robustly make electrochemical sensors, that can stably measure in biological environments. This review highlights the recent trends in the development of 3D-printed electrodes and biosensors for measurement of biomolecules. Novel geometries of 3D-printed electrodes have provided the means to conduct ex vivo measurement in the intestinal tract and in vivo measurements in the brain. 3D-printing is providing the ability to manufacture electrochemical sensors that can measure biomolecules in diverse areas of the body.
