  • A biosensor is an analytical device for the detection of an analyte that combines a biological component with a physico chemical detector.
  • Biosensor is also a chemical sensing device in which a biologically derived recognition entity is coupled to a transducer, to allow the quantitative development of some complex biochemical parameter.
  • It consists of 3 parts 1. Sensitive biological element 2. Transducer and 3. Detector element.
  • The principle of detection of  biosensor is based on the specific interaction between the analyte of interest and the recognition element.
  • Uses in clinical analysis, general health care monitoring, veterinary and agricultural applications, industrial processing and monitoring, and environmental pollution control.
