Course Objective Nowadays, sensitive detectors based biological basics in biochemistry have been used for the selective analysis. The aim of this course is to understand the physical properties of biosensors and bioelectronic devices. It will also help to understand where and why biosensors have been used.
Course Content Introduction to biosensors, structure and function of biosensors, the general working principals, the performers’ criteria, the preparation of biosensors, biomaterials, receptor immobilization, the applications of biosensors; in the environmental measurements, defenses and safety, food and medicine and the new improvements of biosensor technology.
