Abstract

The use of organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) in sensorics is relatively new. Although electronic noses, electronic textiles and disposable biochemical sensors appear to be viable applications for this type of devices, the benefits of the technology still have to be proven. This paper aims to provide a review of the recent advances in the area of chemically sensitive field-effect devices based on organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs), with emphasis on bioanalytical applications. Detection principle, device configuration, materials and fabrication processes as well as sensor performances will be discussed, with emphasis on the potential for implementation in real applications and the important challenges ahead.
