Welcome to the Institute of Bio-Sensing Technology
Bio-sensing technologies are of increasing importance in healthcare, agri-food, environmental and security sectors, and this is reflected in the continued growth of global markets for such technologies.
The Institute of Bio-Sensing Technology (IBST), the first of its type in the UK, aims to develop academic/industrial partnerships to address the technological challenges posed by each of these sectors - from the development of novel technology for detection and measurement of biological systems to the integration of biological systems into novel sensing technology.
More about us
The Conference on Bio-Sensing Technology will bring together leaders from industry and academia to exchange and share their experiences, present research results, explore collaborations and to spark new ideas, with the aim of developing new projects and exploiting new technology for bio-sensing applications Find out more
