Biosensors are able to provide fast, accurate and reliable detections and monitoring of cancer cells, as well as to determine the effectiveness of anticancer chemotherapy agents in cancer treatments. These have attracted a great attention of research communities, especially in the capabilities of detecting the pathogens, viruses and cancer cells in narrow scale that the conventional apparatus and techniques do not have. This paper presents technologies and applications of biosensors for detections of cancer cells and related diseases, with the focus on the current research and technology development about biosensors in Vietnam, a typical developing country with a very high number of patients diagnosed with cancers in recent years, but having a very low cancer survival rate. The role of biosensors in early detections of diseases, cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment, is more and more important; especially it is estimated that by 2020, 60–70% new cases of cancers and nearly 70% of cancer deaths will be in economically disadvantaged countries. The paper is also aimed to open channels for the potential R&D collaborations with partners in Vietnam in the areas of innovative design and development of biosensors in particular and medical technology devices in general.
