Collection and analysis of literature

D2.2 Report on the First Analysis of Organisations/Individuals/Industry in Optronics Biosensing

This report analyses the international state-of-the-art of the research landscape, patents, organisations and individuals of optoelecronic/optronic biosensing, with a look also at graphene, other 2D crystals and plasmonics biosensing.

In this report, we define a biosensing system as a compact analytical device incorporating a biological or biologically derived sensing element (the bio receptor) either integrated within or intimately associated with a physicochemical transducer. Typical bio receptors are enzymes, microorganisms, antibodies, tissue, organelles and chemoreceptors. Typical transducer types are amperometric, potentiometric, semiconductors, thermometric, photometric and piezoelectric

Database of patents on Optronic Biosensing

In order to serve our interest parties best, we provide a link to the patent data website, which provides the most recent patent information:

Espacenet patent search

By using this link, we can ensure you:

  • that your patent search is up to date (due to legal reasons with the exception of the last 18 months),
  • that you can then also directly downlaod th epdf of the patent (click on the left side onto the link "description"),
  • that an automatic translation can be performed for allmost all patents to English,
  • that you can also access, in which countries or regions (e.g. Europe) the patent has been applied for nationally,
  • that the original document can be assessed as PDF,
  • that the European patent office is also providing FAQs and explanations,
  • and that information on expiration dates (in different regions) are given, too.
