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.
