Session Overview Chemical biosensors have made a big progress for a few decades, as represented by metal oxide gas sensors and glucose sensors. These sensors are commercialized and utilized in the world. In relation to gustatory and olfactory senses, new technologies appeared about 30 years ago. The property of these concerning sensors is (1) using semi-selective sensors, (2) adopting a multi-sensor array structure, and (3) using multi-variate analyses if necessary. The sensors corresponding to gustatory and olfactory senses are called “taste sensor” or “electronic tongues” and "electronic noses”, respectively. While several kinds of electronic noses have been proposed so far, the most successful ones utilize metal oxide gas sensors. As is well known, metal oxide gas sensors don’t show high specific response for each chemical substance, and hence a pattern recognition algorithm is used for outputs from plural kinds of sensors.
Electronic tongues (e-tongues) have the same concept as electronic noses; the difference between these two categories is to measure liquid or gas. E-tongues utilize metal electrodes, cyclic voltammetry, colorimetric sensors, lipid/polymer membranes, conductive polymers and Ion-selective electrodes. These electrodes and measurement methods are not selective to each chemical substance except for ion-selective electrodes that are designed to get selective response to specific ions. Recently, a new stream appeared in China by using biological gustatory cells. Anyway, the common feature is to use multi-sensor arrays.
The taste senor was developed in Japan, 1989, and the concept of e-tongues appeared in Europe, 1995. At present, two types of e-tongues are commercialized; one is a taste-sensing system (i.e., taste sensor) developed in Japan and nother is an e-tongue system developed in France. The taste sensor has a noticeable property that each electrode can respond to each taste quality independently, and hence, can discriminate and identify samples and then quantify the taste. This property is the same as the gustatory cell.
The taste sensor and e-tongues have the concept and method different from conventional ones in chemical biosensors and analyses. The present special session is devoted to overview the new stream of sensors

Session Overview The session welcomes any discussion of new sensor technology, specimen collection method, and interpretation of breath analyses. The recent advancement of highly sensitive VOC detection by chemical or gas sensors and progress of array or microsensors combined with system technology enables a new application of ppb level detection of breath VOC, and this state of the art of detection technology accelerate the generation of commercially available sensor systems for health care application with significantly enhanced detection capabilities and minimal size, weight and power consumption. In this session, the current state of the art of VOC detection and analysis for health care and medical application would be overviewed, and the standardization and methodology for specimen collection, patient preparation, data analysis for assessing human health or disease would be discussed. This session intends to bridge the gap between the recent achievement of chemical sensors and systems and its applications to the new field in the human health monitoring such as breath analysis can create great impact to the global challenges that are faced by medical communities and sensor technology users.

Session Overview The session welcomes any discussion of sensor measurement technology, standardization, sampling method of gas or chemical specimen. The recent advancement of highly sensitive chemical or gas sensors and progress of array or microsensors combined with system technology enables a new application of room air monitoring, exhaust gas monitoring, and fast sensing for dangerous and harsh environment. In addition to these diversity of applications, progress in new sensor technologies has been impeded by a lack of standardized protocol or rules for sensor test and response analysis; although there is some consensus on certain aspects of sampling, or gas flow manipulations, atmospheres of temperature and humidity, the disparity of approaches often makes inter-comparisons between datasets difficult if not impossible, and the resulting outputs questionable.
This session intends to bridge the gap between the recent achievement of chemical sensors and test methods, and it is hoped that the discussion in this session will be a catalyst for progressive development in advanced use of the chemical sensors.
