Nanowire-based detection strategies provide promising new routes to bioanalysis that could one day revolutionize the healthcare industry. This review covers recent developments in nanowire sensors for multiplexed detection of biomolecules such as nucleic acids and proteins. We focus on encoded nanowire suspension arrays and semiconductor nanowire-based field-effect transistors. Nanowire assembly and integration with microchip technology is emphasized as a key step toward the ultimate goal of multiplexed detection at the point of care using portable, low power, electronic biosensor chips.
