A Review on Studies and Research on Biosensors: An Interdisciplinary Pursuit

Authors(1) :-Sunil Jayant Kulkarni

The detection and transfer of signals enables quick response in the diagnosis. Generally for detection of components in samples, chromatographic methods are used. Other methods such as energy dispersed X ray analysis, atomic absorption methods are used for detection of various compounds and impurities in water samples. Also the compounds in gases are detected by using various chromatographic, calorimetric and chemical analyses. It is always desired to measure the real time concentration and convey the signals to other display systems. A biosensor is an analytical device which converts a biological response into an electrical signal. These are analytical devices in which speciļ¬c recognition of the chemical substances is performed by biological material, usually an enzyme. The current review summarizes research and studies on biosensors.
