Biosensors are the devices, which integrate the biological recognition element and a small transduction unit for the purpose of detecting various analytes. Biosensors are being developed for various applications such as quality control of food, agriculture, medical and pharmaceutical field, clinical assay and disease diagnostics. Recently, field of tissue engineering and cancer diagnostic provide the new scope in biosensor development. Specially, Cancer diagnostics can provide the broad market for new biosensors. This review focuses on the general description of biosensors and their applications in the field of tissue engineering and cancer diagnostics.
