Organic field-effect transistors as bio-electronic devices

Organic field-effect transistors (OFET) are thin-film transistors that involve an organic semiconductor as active layer.

Organic field-effect transistors (OFET) are thin-film transistors that involve an organic semiconductor as active layer. They can be fabricated by printing compatible technologies on plastic or even paper substrates. Recently, bio-receptors have been integrated into such structures to study bio-organic interfaces and investigate bio-chemical and bio-organic interactions through an electronic probe. These systems are  usually addressed as “Bio-electronic” devices and can be used as highly performing sensors that are promising as next generation disposable strep-tests. This lecture will involve the discussion on different bio-electronic devices configurations comparing their performance level as well as addressing the peculiar sensing/interaction processes.
