Abstract

Abstract The inherent specificity of biological molecules is currently being successfully exploited in the development of analytical biosensors. The physicochemical changes that occur when enzymes or antibodies recognize and respond to their substrates is being monitored in a variety of innovative devices in which the biological species is coupled with a suitable transducer, converting the concentration of analyte into a quantifiable electrical signal. The development of these biosensors is proceeding alongside the semiconductor and fibre-optic revolutions and represents a union of expertise from the fields of microelectronics, electrochemistry, optics and of course biochemistry.
