The development of sustainable sensors, including paper-based electrochemical devices, is a growing concern due to their economic efficiency, suitability for on-site analysis and the environment. They can be used as "point of care devices", meeting the requirements of the WHO-certified ASSURED criteria, which describe the ideal features of a diagnostic test. Different types of paper will be studied, using different techniques for making paper-based devices and testing different configurations (enzymes, nucleic and immune-based sensors) for biomedical and / or environmental applications.
