Nanotechnology plays an important role in the development of biosensors. The sensitivity and performance of biosensors are improved by using nanomaterials through new signal transduction technologies. The development of tools and processes used to fabricate, measure and image nanoscale objects has led to the development of sensors that interact with extremely small molecules need to be analyzed. Nano biosensor research focuses on developing innovative technologies that have the ability to make significant contributions in the areas of human and animal disease. The emergence of nanotechnology has opened up new horizons for the development of nanosensors and nanoprobes with submicron-sized dimensions that are suitable for intra cellular measurements. New nanomaterials and nanostructures need to be explored for use in biosensors. Preferably biosensors should be integrated within tiny biochips with on-board electronics, which leads to the development of wide range of nanobiosensors in the past two decades.
