Objectives of the Course
The course introduces an overview of the fundamental principles and applications of biosensors. More specifically it will cover the following subjects: What is a sensor? How does a sensor become biological in nature? The history of biosensors. What are the components of a biosensor? What are the types of transducers used in biosensors? What are bioreceptor molecules? How are bioreceptor molecules attached to the transducers, i.e. immobilised? What are the most important factors that govern the performance of a biosensor? In what areas have biosensors been applied?
