Biomaterials are materials which are used mainly in medical in order to repair or replace the damaged tissue. They have great impact on cell growth and proliferation of tissues. In the emergence of these biocompatible biomaterials as implants, augments that has remolded medical treatment, allowing the development in the fields of tissue engineering and medical bionic devices. Biosensors are the analytical devices which can convert biological responses into electrical signals. Biomaterials have many applications in medical filed such as cancer treatments, artificial ligaments and collagen tissue, joint replacements, bone plates, and applications in contact lenses, and also having some non-medical applications such as to, blood proteins assays, growing cells in culture etc.
