Sensors and Bioselective Reagents

Mariusz Pietrzak


The combination of bioselective reagents with analytical chemistry brought new possibilities to determine important analytes and reflected in the construction of novel devices capable of qualitative and quantitative analysis of various samples. Development of biosensors, which are the children of this fruitful relationship, was accompanied by significant progress in biology, biotechnology, genetics, chemistry, physics and electronics. This work describes the basic principles of (bio)sensors operation, terminology and classification of biosensors according to signal transduction mechanism and bioreceptor used. Both, catalytic and affinity receptors are presented and methods of their immobilization to a transducer surface are commented. The most important working parameters affecting the usefulness of biosensors are listed and discussed. This review ends with the brief look into biosensors history and comments on present practical applications and future directions of their development.
