Overview of the entire book is addressed in this chapter. A couple of basic terms are defined, including biomedical diagnostics and biosensors. A basic concept of biosensors is then introduced, and two most popular transducers-optical and electrochemical-are briefly explained. The sensors and connectivity options available in many commercial smartphones are explained, and their utilization toward biosensing and ultimately biomedical diagnostics is explained. A brief introduction on the remaining chapters of this book is summarized at the end of this chapter.
