The concept of biosensors
Nov 06, 2017
Biosensors are an interdisciplinary subject that organically combines biological active materials (enzymes, proteins, DNA, antibodies, antigens, biofilms, etc.) with physical and chemical transducers, an advanced method of detection and monitoring which is essential for the development of biotechnology, and a rapid and micro-analytical method for the molecular level of matter. Various biosensors have the following common structures: includes one or several related bioactive materials (biofilms) and physical or chemical transducers (sensors) that convert signals from biological activity to electrical signals, which are combined together to process biological signals using modern microelectronics and automated instrumentation technology, It forms a variety of biosensors, instruments and systems that can be used.
