There are plenty of applications for biosensors, and the ability to mass-produce these sensors by printing has plenty of potential. Already, printed biosensors are finding many industrial opportunities.
In October 2016, Sun Chemical acquired Gwent Electronic Materials, in addition to Gwent’s sister company, Applied Enzyme Technology, to provide a one-stop solution for printed biosensor needs. In 2018, Applied Enzyme Technology was reintroduced as SunSens.
Maria Owen, strategic accounts manager, Sun Chemical, noted that while there were market offerings that provided pieces of the necessary liquid compounds to create printed biosensor technology, there was no single solution that provided all of the materials necessary for printed biosensors.
“Products utilizing SunSens technology are commercialized and available now,” Owen added. “While building the electronics takes a minimal amount of time, there is a significant am
