Abstract: The application of the recent progress in micro- and nanotechnologies promises to revolutionise the applications of immunosensors. Indeed, the application of such technologies is allowing the miniaturisation of the
biosensor devices, the development of microfluidic platforms and the increase in the sensitivity of the immunoassaysperformed. We are assisting in the appearance of a cascade of new immunosensor devices at the micro- and nanoscale which could be easily integrated in portable “lab-on-a-chip” platforms to perform “point-of-care” analysis and which in the future could even work inside the human body as “nano-sentinels”
