The paper-based colorimetric assays have been widely reported in literature being cost-effective, not requiring additional components (i.e. pump) for microfluidic handling of the solution, and avoiding the sample treatment thanks to the filtering property of the paper.  In the last decade, the  electroanalysis has discovered the utility of using paper as  electrode-active support, converging the reported advantages of paper with  the features of electroanalysis such the high sensitivity, selectivity and  the capability to work in complex matrices (e.g. colored samples).  Herein, we reported our recent results in the development of paper-based devices for precision medicine, chemical warfare agent detection, and water monitoring.
