With a spotlight on everything from breath tests to dogs’ noses, biosensors are an increasingly important aspect of diagnostic research. But not every sensor offers the same benefits – and it’s important to find a balance between cost, ease-of-use, sensitivity and specificity. To meet this diverse set of needs, we propose refinements to an existing technology, the “water-gated organic transistor,” to improve its ability to assist in the diagnosis of numerous diseases including cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s (1).
