Biosensors- Types and Applications

Biosensor is an analytical device containing an immobilized biological material, which can specifically interact with the analyte to produce a signal that can be measured.The biological material can enzyme, antibody, hormone, etc.

A biosensor has 2 components:

  1. Biological Component: Enzyme, Hormone, Antibody, etc.
  2. Physical Component: Transducer, Amplifier

Types of Biosensors:
  • Electrochemical Biosensors
  • Thermometric Biosensors
  • Optical Biosensors
  • Piezoelectric Biosensors
  • Immunobiosensors
  • Whole Cell Biosensors
