Abstract: Molecularly imprinted polymers are mostly confined to laboratories and their standardized environments. Chemical sensors based on MIP are no exception to this; however, there are increasing efforts to span the gap toward technological applications and thus exposing the devices to real-life environments and thereby assessing selectivity, sensitivity, and ruggedness of the respective sensors. In some application areas this has already been successful, namely in detecting volatile organics and their mixtures, sensing pesticides in environmental water samples, in assessing oxidation processes, e.g., in engine oils, and in some applications of bioanalysis targeting both signaling molecules/drugs and whole cells, viruses, or bacteria. Here, we summarize the selected aspects for transferring MIP strategies out from lab-bench conditions and highlight some of the successful examples.
