The emerging field of Bioelectronics seeks to exploit biology in conjunction with electronics in a wider context encompassing, for example, biological fuel cells, bionics and biomaterials for information processing, information storage, electronic components and actuators. A key aspect is the interface between biological materials and micro- and nano-electronics. Bioelectronics is a recently coined term for a field of research that works to establish a synergy between electronics and biology.
Figure 1: Electrical impedance measurement system with two different shaped electrodes. A) Disc-like electrodes. The scaffold disc is sandwiched between the ground electrode (ii) and the top electrode (i). B) Needle-like electrodes are 0.1-0.2 mm inserted into the scaffold disc. Distance between electrodes is 0.5 cm; s: scaffold.
