About the book
Biosensors are devices used to measure or detect the presence or concentration of a biological analyte in a quantitative or semiquantitative manner, such as a biomolecule, a biological structure or a microorganism. Biosensors consist of three parts: a component that recognizes the analyte (a biological recognition element) and produces a signal, a signal transducer, and a reader device.
The aim of this book is to highlight the current and novel strategies for biosensing. This book project includes different kinds of receptors and/or transducers strategies for biosensing, such as Schiff base metal complexes, biological molecules (DNA, proteins, enzymes, antibodies, multi-organisms, etc.), graphene oxide- nanomaterials, metal-organic frameworks, and electrospun fibers. Chapter's proposals can focus their work on the mode of physicochemical transduction (such as optical, thermal, piezoelectric and electrochemical) or the biorecognition element. Applications of these biosensors can include biomedical, environmental, bioremediation, and industrial amongst others.
Chapters can include original research or recompilation of existing data, discussing the state of the art of biosensing technologies.
