Wearable skin biosensors have important applications in health monitoring, medical treatment and theranostics. There has been a rapid growth in the development of novel biosensing and bioanalytical techniques in recent years, much of it underpinned by recent advancements in nanotechnology. As the two related disciplines continue to co-evolve, we take a timely look at some notable developments in skin biosensing/bioanalysis, scan the horizon for emerging nanotechnologies, and discuss how they may influence the future of biosensing/bioanalysis in the skin.
