"Professor John's study on microfluidics would help in building biomarker-based biosensors that could be used for instantaneous detection of heart attack and other cardiac diseases," the note said.
Chemists and materials scientists review recent research on materials for biosensors and the application of biosensors in various fields.
[ClickPress, Thu Sep 27 2018] In today's world, due to constant and significant technological advancements, biosensors industry is witnessing substantial growth over the last few years.
One of the more promising technologies is biosensors. Biosensors are part of a new field of study called bionanotechnology.
To help to overcome the accessibility and proximity limitations and to reduce the susceptibility to interfering substances by lowering the electrode potentials, redox mediators have been used in biosensors. Mediators are small and soluble artificial electron transferring agents that can participate in the redox reaction by shuttling electrons from the redox center of the enzyme to the surface of the working electrode.
The recent advances on the characterization of the G-rich DNA sequences, at the surface of electrochemical transducers, and the design and applications of GQ electrochemical biosensors for the detection of metal ions, GQ ligands, and other small organic molecules, proteins, and cells will be presented.
Electrochemical biosensors predominantly use enzymes, and they can be classified into amperometric, potentiometric, or conductometric sensors.
Electrochemical biosensors have received much attention as a reliable diagnostic tool for infectious diseases as their sensing performances are not affected by turbidity or absorbance of the sample [8].
