Free-form electronics is driving the bio-medical industry with specifications such as user customization, cost-effectiveness and short response time. Unification of bio- and electronic materials will open doors for wider applications. Integration of electronic materials for bio-sensing is one such field and had garnered much interest. The paper briefly discusses bio-sensors from materials perspective by throwing light on different types of materials and their morphologies for bio-sensors. The advent of 3D-printing, making the fabrication cost effective and easy, has further fueled interest in this field. The paper highlights the work in putting down inkjet printer circuits on biomaterials for various applications.
