Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and nanowires (NWs) have been drawing attention for highly-sensitive nano-biosensors and biological signal measurements. However, one of the major stumbling blocks holding back such applications is a lack of reliable mass-production methods for CNT/NW-based devices. This presentation will first briefly discuss how to mass-produce CNT/NW-based sensor transducers (named here as "nano-platform") for biological measurements [1,2]. Then, we will talk about several specific applications such as CNT-based biosensors integrated with CMOS chips, olfactory receptor-based odorant sensors, tissue engineering , and single-ion-channel monitoring of a live cell.
