The ESP Community's Biosensing  group provides a platform where researchers, designers, developers and users of biosensors and biosensing components, systems and services can interact with each other, keep abreast of the research and development activities in this field and identify issues and opportunities relevant to their businesses.

The scope of the Biosensing group includes biosensors (defined as compact analytical devices incorporating a biological or biologically derived sensing element either integrated within or intimately associated with a physicochemical transducer) and associated technologies and components of such devices AND biosensing (defined as the specific application of a biosensor or any other sensor to monitor living systems). 

The majority of its activity relates to the dissemination of information of interest and providing support to member organisations to help them identify and address relevant opportunities for the development and exploitation of biosensing technology. 

The group also helps raise the profile of industrial and academic organisations working in the biosensing field via its Guides to UK industrial and academic research activities in biosensors and biosensing.

Membership of this group is open to anyone involved in the research, design, development or manufacture of biosensors and biosensing devices, instruments and systems. This includes scientists, technologists, product managers, manufacturing managers, strategic planners, academics and consultants etc working in sectors such as healthcare, security, food and agriculture and environmental.

Membership of the group is free of charge


Knowledge Centres Driving innovation

The three main challenge areas are shown below, although our work is by no means limited to these three areas, as can be seen from our work in the Special Interest Groups of Internet of Things, Smart DC, Smart Energy and the Connected Digital Economy Catapult group.
