Electrochemical biosensors

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapterpeer-review


This chapter will focus on the measurement of analytes using biosensors. Biosensors are electrodes which have a biological entity on the surface that is used for the specific detection of an analyte. The emphasis will be on the different types of electrochemical biosensors that can be fabricated, some of the key limitations of these biosensors and examples of how these have been applied for biological measurement. The examples will focus on the one type of biosensor that is most widely used, which is the enzymatic based biosensor.
