A biosensor system for medical diagnostics based around resonant MEMS sensor technology is presented in this paper. The working principle of the bioMEMS device is introduced and the functionalisation strategies for cancer marker recognition are described. In addition, the successful packaging and integration of functional MEMS biosensor devices are reported herein. This ongoing work represents one of the first hybrid assemblies to integrate a PCB packaged silicon MEMS device into a disposable microfluidic device.
