Concentrating on the fabrics appropriate for biosensor functions, akin to nanoparticles, quantum dots, meso- and nanoporous fabrics and nanotubes, this article allows the reader to organize the respective nanomaterials to be used in real units through acceptable functionalization, floor processing or directed self-assembly. the most detection equipment used are electrochemical, optical, and mechanical, delivering strategies to difficult tasks.The result's a reference for researchers and builders, disseminating first-hand details on which nanomaterial is most fitted to a specific program -- and why.

This method represented a very simple, fast, and efﬁcient route for the construction of highly loaded enzyme electrodes. Upon applying a magnet, the magnetic enzyme aggregate was collected on a carbon SPE and catalytic currents recorded by cyclic voltammetry. The response obtained was much higher than that measured at an electrode directly coated with a packed ﬁlm of diaphorase. Further advantages have been demonstrated to arise from the combination of Au-NPs with CNTs  or conductive polymers such as PPy and PANI .
Upon using ferrocene carboxaldehyde as a redox indicator, the hybridization event was achieved with high sensitivity and selectivity. More recently, Berti et al.  reported the design and testing of different vertically aligned MWNTs thin ﬁlms for DNA immobilization and genosensor development. The sensors were realized by thermal CVD onto insulators (SiO2, Si3N4) as well as metallic substrates using acetylene and ammonia as precursor gases, and the best performance was obtained with nanotubes grown on an aluminum layer able to serve as growing substrate as well as electrical contact.
A different type of magnetic composite nanobead was developed by Pal et al.  to act as an immunomagnetic concentrator of Bacillus anthracis spores from food samples as well as an electrical transducer. Magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (100 nm in diameter) were coated with a conductive PANI layer, linked to a detector antibody, and added to the contaminated food sample. After binding the spores, beads were magnetically removed and deposited on a pad, placed between silver electrodes, where a secondary antibody had been previously immobilized.
