Summary Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) spectroscopies are well-known characterization techniques that reveal the molecular details of a sample non-invasively. We not only discuss how NMR can provide useful information on the microstructure of carbon and its surface properties, but also explain how C-MEMS/C-NEMS technology can be explored for building improved NMR microdevices. The manipulation of fluids and particles by dielectrophoresis and the use of carbon electrodes for dielectrophoresis in Lab-on-a-Chip applications is also discussed. The use of these electrodes in sample preparation through electrical polarization of a sample for identification, manipulation and lysis of bioparticles is emphasized. A new generation of neural prosthetics based on glassy carbon micromachined electrode arrays is introduced. The tuning of the electrical, electrochemical and mechanical properties of these patternable electrodes for applications in bio-electrical signal recording and stimulation, and results from in-vivo testing of these glassy carbon microelectrode arrays is reported, demonstrating a quantifiable superior performance compared to metal electrodes. Also the merits of high aspect ratio 3D C-MEMS/C-NEMS electrodes is made abundantly clear. When using carbon Interdigitated Electrode Arrays (IDEAS) the lower limits of detection (LODs) are often equivalent or better that those of the much more complicated and expensive optical fluorescence sensing schemes
