  • Glenn Sunley Saez

Student thesis: Phd


Organic field effect transistors (OFETs) have gained interest as transducers for label-free biosensors as they benefit from intrinsic signal amplification and electrical output to enable outstanding sensing performance. They are easy to interpret and can be fabricated at low cost; allowing the development of disposable electronic sensing systems that are ideal for point of care (PoC) testing. Electrolyte-gated organic field effect transistors (EGOFETs) benefit from a simple device architecture that utilises an aqueous gating solution, a low operating potential (
