In numerous field studies and design audits, failure to match the antenna to the intended system application has led to poor or low quality of service for the wireless sensor network. Here we will cover some of the basics of antenna types and theory. Basically, an antenna is a transducer designed to transmit or receive radio waves, which are a class of electromagnetic waves [47]. Effectively, an antenna is simply a device that converts RF electrical currents into electromagnetic waves, and vice versa.

These sensors are primarily targeted at field detection of biowarfare agents such as anthrax or bubonic plague [65]. However, they are currently very complex, expensive, and are not suited to large-scale deployment. 4 Lab-on-a-Chip Lab-on-a-chip devices are essentially scaled-down analytical instruments that can perform complex operations on samples including sample processing, reagent addition, detection, and calibration [66]. They offer tremendous scope to automate many analytical measurements including diagnostics.
