UKPRwire, Tue Nov 28 2017] A Biosensors is an analytical device which is used to detect the analyze and gathers biological components with the help of a physicochemical detector.
Biosensors have emerged as an excellent technique for the qualitative and quantitative determination of various analytes in environmental, clinical, agricultural, and food applications, say Malhotra and Pandey, but so far are not robust enough to operation reliably outside pristine laboratory conditions.

This research focuses on electrochemical biosensors based on DNA stabilization on the surface of modified electrodes.
A wide variety of state-of-the-art technologies will be applied, including: (i) innovative chemical approaches for the design, synthesis and engineering of peptide and protein biosensors, (ii) biochemical, biophysical, and fluorescence-based approaches for characterization of the sensitivity, specificity and physicochemical features of the biosensors, (iii) cell biology and fluorescence imaging approaches for characterization and validation of these biosensors in cellulo and in vivo, (iv) application of fluorescent biosensors for development of diagnostic assays, and (v) application of fluorescent biosensors for development of high throughput screening assays and identification of selective non-ATP competitive inhibitors for cancer therapeutics.
Biosensors have been recently used in medical, biological and industrial aspects to increase the speed of diagnosis.
