    There is an expanding demand for adaptive contactless label-free biosensors for point-of-care, multi-user, health risk-free applications. This paper introduces the design of an elliptically-slotted patch antenna (ESPA) for bio-sensing applications. The resonance frequency difference of the ESPA is 2.5% compared with the basic slot-less patch antenna of 6.6%. Hence, the proposed model compares with the conventional slot-less patch antenna and exhibited a vast improvement in its bandwidth efficiency by over 62%. The simulated ESPA design yields a total gain of 7.5 dBi and can be utilized for simultaneous bio-sample detection and signal transmission applications. The miniaturized size of this system promises a portable label-free, reliable, realtime detection with a cost-effective fabrication.
