Two dimensional materials such as graphene carry special electrical, optical and mechanical properties owing to their atomic thickness, resulted in exciting developments in the field of bioelectronics and wearables during recent years. In this talk some of the applications of graphene in sensing and biotechnology will be presented. Specifically a graphene based microfluidic device for cell trapping and lysis, a three dimensional graphene transistor for pH sensing in high ionic concentration media and graphene based electronic tattoos (GET) will be introduced. Also the application of GET in electroencephalography (EEG), electrocardiography (ECG), electromyography (EMG), electrooculography (EOG), skin hydration and skin temperature sensing and human machine interface will be discussed.
