Nanotechnology has been around for several decades and been adopted by many

researchers in biological science and medicine. It has transformed and changed the way many

researchers perform experiments. This includes ability to visualize molecules, protein at smaller

scale with high precision and cost-effective. In addition, nanofabrication,

microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and surface analysis techniques derived from

nanotechnology enable innovative studies and allow researcher to design novel experiment that

have not been done before. In this thesis, we focus on the application of nanotechnological

techniques and instruments on biological research including gas sensing, biosensing and

developmental study of pluripotent stem cells towards cardiomyocytes.
