About this book

This book provides a coherent tutorial introduction to biosensors for engineers and research and development workers involved in sensor development and application. The fundamental principles are reviewed before considering the practical aspects of design and fabrication for each of the major classes of biosensor.


Part 1 Introduction: biosensors - nature's tools?; historical development; applications. Part 2 General principles: definitions; general characteristics; physical biodetection; chemical biodetection; instrumentation; principles of biosensors. Part 3 Construction of biosensors: choice of bioreceptor; choice of transductor; immobilization of bioreceptors. Part 4 Enzyme sensors: principle of operation; theoretical aspects; practical aspects; potentiometric enzyme electrodes; amperometric enzyme electrodes; semiconductor enzyme sensors; optical enzyme sensors; thermal enzyme sensors; piezoelectric enzyme sensors. Part 5 Microbial sensors: preparation methods; comparison microbial sensors; possibilities and limitations. Part 6 Immunological sensors: antigen-antibody coupling; enzyme labelling. Part 7 Other biosensors: animal tissue; plant tissue; other receptors. Part 8 Use and application: operating methods; applications. Part 9 Economic factors.
