¢ A biosensor is a device for the detection of an analytic that combines a biological component with a physicochemical detector component. Many optical biosensors based on the phenomenon of surface plasmon resonance are evanescent wave techniques . The most widespread example of a commercial biosensor is the blood glucose biosensor, which uses the enzyme glucose oxidase to break blood glucose down

Biosensor consist of

¢ 1.the sensitive biological element
¢ 2.the transducer or detector element
¢ 3.signal processors


¢ Durable
¢ Tiny and compactable
¢ Linear response
¢ Small, cheap
¢ Easy use
¢ Highly specific


a “ analyte
c - immobilized biological molecule
d -biospecific immobilization surface
e - chemical signal
f- transducer
g - amplification and control unit interferent
h - output of measured analyte


1.Less sensitive
2.Long life
4.More tolerant


Response time is longer
After use it require more time
Cells contains many enzymes


1.Medicine and health
4.Pollution control


1. Potentiometric biosensors
2. Amperometric biosensors
3. Optimal biosensors
4. Calorimetric biosensors
5. Acoustic wave biosensors


¢ Use iron selective electrodes
¢ Electrodes used are
-solid state electrode
-ph meter glass electrode
¢ Gas sensing electrode detect and measure the amount of gas produced


¢ It measures the change in temperature
¢ It can be used for turbid and strongly colored solutions
¢ Eg-glucose oxidase for determination of glucose


¢ Production of current when potential applied between electrodes
¢ These are the first generation biosensors
¢ Used to measure redox reactions


¢ Measure both catalytic and affinity reactions
¢ They measure change in fluorescence


¢ These are also called piezo electric devices
¢ There Surface is coated with antibodies which bind to the complementary antigen present in the sample solution


There are number of areas where the unique capabilities of biosensors might be exploted to meet the requirement of environmental monitering.advances in such areas such as toxity,bioavailability and multipollutant screening, could when the potential market and allow these techniques to be more competetive.miniatarizaion,reversability and continuous operation may allow biosensor techniques to be incorporated as detectors in chromatographic systems

What is a Biosensor

A biosensor is a self-contained integrated device thai is capable of providing specific quantitative or semi-quantitative analytical information using a biological recognition element which is in direct spatial contact with a transduction element (IUPAC, 1996)
"Biosensor" - Any device that uses specific biochemical reactions to detect chemical compounds in biological samples.

Current Definition

A sensor that integrates a biological element with a physiochemical transducer to produce an electronic signal proportional to a single analyte which is then conveyed to a detector.

History of Biosensors

3. Amperometric Biosensor
4. Optical Biosensor
5. Piezo-electric Biosensor

Piezo-Electric Biosensors

ct the specific angle at which electron waves are d to laser light or crystals, such as quartz, which vibrate under the influence of an electric field.

Electrochemical Biosensors

¢ For applied current: Movement of e- in redox reactions detected when a potential is applied between two electrodes.

Potentiometric Biosensor

” For voltage: Change in distribution of charge is detected using ion-selective electrodes, such as pH-meters.

Optical Biosensors

¢ Colorimetric for color Measure change in light adsorption
¢ Photometric for light intensity
Photon output for a luminescent or fluorescent process can be detected with photomultiplier tubes or photodiode systems.

Calorimetric Biosensors

If the enzyme catalyzed reaction is exothermic, two thermistors may be used to
the analyte concentration.

Electrochemical DNA Biosensor

¦ Steps involved in electrochemical DNA hybridization biosensors:
¦ Formation of the DNA recognition layer
¦ Actual hybridization event
¦ Transformation of the hybridization event into an electrical signal

DNA biosensor

Motivated by the application to clinical diagnosis and genome mutation detection

Types DNA Biosensors

” Chips
” Crystals

Biosensors on the Nanoscale

Molecular sheaths around the nanotube are developed that respond to a particular chemical and modulate the nanotube's optical properties.
In a nanoelectrode react with low-concentration lect). Doctors can use to diagnose diseases at earlier
Nanosphere lithography (NSL) derived triangular Ag nanoparticles are used to detect streptavidin down to one picomolar concentrations.
The School of Biomedical Engineering has developed an anti- body based
