An extensive overview of the progress in the commercialization of portable biosensors is given in the present chapter. The survey is focused on these systems and technologies that are either already incorporated in commercial products or are very close to be commercialized, being characterized with a Technology Readiness Level value of 7 or higher. Updated information is provided in the following sectors: (i) optimization and advances in conceptual approaches and operating principles, (ii) novel applications of commercial handheld/portable biosensors, and (iii) novel biomarkers that could be used as targets for emerging biosensor platforms.
