An important challenge in today’s societies is that life expectancy and the prevalence of chronic conditions are increasing. This puts pressure on the healthcare system and raises a demand for easy to use and cost-effective medical technologies in order to manage chronic conditions outside large institutional healthcare settings. Part of the answer may come from point-of-care testing (in-vitro) and patient monitoring devices (on-body or in-body) which will enable to remotely monitor the progress of patients, to personalize treatment, and to reduce the number of visits needed to the hospital. In this talk I will review the use of nano- and microparticles for molecular biosensing applications. Particles have the advantage of a large surface-to-volume ratio, convenient bio-functionalization, and large signals for detection. I will focus on stationary-fluidic architectures in which fluid manipulation is minimized, based on magnetic and plasmonic particles.
