Centre for Biosensors, Bioelectronics and Biodevices
We develop technologies to improve biomedical diagnosis, environmental monitoring, industrial bio-processes and our understanding of biological functions.
We are academics who bring together research expertise from across the faculties of Engineering & Design, Science, and Humanities & Social Sciences.
We are skilled postdoctoral researchers who work on projects related to the research areas of the Centre.
We are postgraduate students working towards our doctorates in research themes associated with the Centre.
Biosensors involve different elements from separate disciplines. Our Centre brings together research expertise spanning all aspects of biosensors development.
We are working on aspects of biodevices both at individual component and whole-systems level. We take a co-design approach to research to increase impact.
Our Centre is investigating and innovating the electrical recordings of cell signals, in particular neurons, cancer cells and microalgae.
Scientists have created a non-invasive, adhesive patch, which promises the measurement of glucose levels through the skin without a finger-prick blood test.
Our researchers have developed a revolutionary paper sensor, creating a cheap, sustainable and recyclable device for detecting toxic compounds in water.
An international collaboration between the University of Bath and Universidad de los Andes has developed an integrated device for testing a water source.
A University of Bath scientist has for the first time developed a way of monitoring alterations in the aquatic system by listening to microalgae communicating.
New ‘water fingerprinting’ technology developed by researchers at the University of Bath
Dr Pedro Estrela's research with the University of São Paulo develops novel biosensor technology for detecting early-stage prostate and breast cancer.
