A Review Of Microcantilevers For Sensing Applications

Abstract:
Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) have come into existence only in the last decade. Microcantilevers are the most simplified MEMS based devices. They are of significant interest as they have potential applications in every field of science ranging from physical and chemical sensing to biological disease diagnosis.

The major advantages of employing microcantilevers as sensing mechanisms over the conventional sensors include their high sensitivity, low cost, low analyte requirement, non-hazardous procedure with fewer processing steps, quick response time and low power requirement. Most important is the fact that an array of microcantilevers can be employed for the diagnosis of large numbers of analytes such as various disease biomarkers of a single disease in a single go thus providing tremendously high throughput analysis capabilities.
