Abstract

The use of intact bacterial cells or tissue slices of plant and animal origin as immobilized biocatalysts has extended the possible range of potentiometric bioselective membrane electrodes beyond that of conventional enzyme electrodes. The use of such materials as biocatalysts offers advantages in situations where isolated enzymes are not available or where multistep reaction paths are required. The resulting bioselective electrodes also offer exceptional ease of preparation, time stability, and low cost.
