The term 'nanodevice' covers a wide range of useful tools. This includes sensors, transistors, actuators and robots. The advancement of nanoscale electronics has led to the development and manufacture of faster, smaller products.

Nanomaterials are the natural successor to silicon technology. They allow the construction of increasingly smaller circuits and devices.

Applications in nanobiotechnology

Each biological function is underpinned by complex machinery. This  operates at a scale that is far smaller than traditional medical devices. 

Advances in nanotechnologies allow us to fabricate sensors and electronics with nanoscale dimensions. These are the perfect size for incorporating into cells and other biological media.

This leads to many applications in the field of nanobiotechnology. It's opening new possibilities for diagnosing and treating human disease.
