Flexible biosensors play an important role in disease diagnosis and individual healthcare management. Currently, the applications of the biosensors are mainly for non-invasive and wearable detection of biomarkers in body fluids to achieve better healthcare management. In this chapter, the representative flexible electrochemical biosensors including amperometric and potentiometric biosensors used for different flexible applications are introduced. Then, we will focus on transistor-based flexible biosensors that show high sensitivity and low detection limit and are suitable for multiplexing and miniaturization. The bioinspired sensors are briefly addressed to provide readers some biomimetic ideas in the design of flexible biosensors. In the end, the current challenges and outlook for the development of flexible biosensors are discussed.
