This chapter deals specifically with the nanocomposite materials that are or can be used in the biosensing technology, since they are highly controllable and custom fabricated. We will emphasize particularly the application of nanocomposite materials as a solution to miniaturization process. The need of miniature devices is becoming very important, as they are the main detection and monitoring components in implantable and point-of-care systems for real-time analysis and diagnosis. The ability to design biosensors at micro- or nanoscale allows for medical real-time continuous monitoring of certain vital health-related conditions.
