Biosensors used in health care are optical, electrical, piezoelectrical devices that have the ability to detect biological compounds, such as nucleic acids and proteins. Early diagnosis of inherited disease is important for effective treatment and is sometimes lifesaving. Current molecular diagnostic methods, for example, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and PCR can require highly skilled personnel, expensive chemicals and be time consuming. In this area, many biosensor schemes have been developed as an alternative to classical methods. Moreover, the pace of research in the biosensor field is extremely fast and new information including advancements in nanotechnology and gene technology is pouring out of the laboratories at a nearly unimaginable rate.
OMICS Group hosts over 700+ peer-reviewed journals and has organized over 3000+ International Scientific Conferences all over the world. Most of the open access journal articles can be cited with proper reference, which boosts the prospects of research. The importance of peer-reviewed open access journals has also grown in modern learning environment as most of the students need a swift and instant access to published research work free of cost. A quality tracking system handles the articles submitted by various authors based on quality-checking for originality and consistency for subsequent approval.
