Abstract

Tuberculosis remains one of the deadliest and most widespread infectious diseases in the world. Current methods of diagnosing tuberculosis have the disadvantages of poor specificity or sensitivity and are often time-consuming, inaccurate, and complicated. The use of biosensors represents a promising option for developing reliable, simple, and affordable tools for the effective detection of tuberculosis. Recent advances in the design of biosensors for the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis include the use of novel biological recognition elements and improved sample preparation. In this review, we describe the most recent developments in the biosensor field and assess their potential value as diagnostic tools.
