Overview

A cutting-edge collection of detailed, step-by-step techniques and prools for constructing, evaluating, and using enzyme- and microbial-based biosensors. Ideal for novices starting research in their field or experienced researchers wanting to use a biosensor for a specific analytical measurement, the methods detailed here allow biochemists, analytical chemists, microbiologists, and engineers to successfully apply biosensor technology to their specific problems. The techniques include classical enzyme biosensors based on potentiometric, amperometric, conductimetric, optical, and thermal transducers, as well cell-based biosensors based on amperometric and optical transducers. A companion volume, Affinity Biosensors: Prools and Techniques, by Rogers & Mulchandani, concentrates on cell- and affinity-based biosensors.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Howard H. Sky-Peck
This volume, Number 6 in the Methods in Biotechnology series, provides a description of a variety of transduction techniques that have been interfaced to enzymes and microorganisms. The purpose is to provide a basic reference tool and starting point to enable rapid entry into the field of biosensors. It is written to introduce graduate and postdoctoral students and senior researchers to the field of biosensors. Although not an exhaustive treatise, this book provides a detailed, step-by-step description for a variety of enzyme- and microbial-based biosensor techniques that will allow a novice or an experienced investigator to expand into new areas of research most appropriate for their analytical needs. The illustrations are simple and helpful, and the references are up-to-date and extensive. This is a very useful volume for the detailed methodologies related to biosensors for use in analytical techniques. This volume is primarily devoted to theory and mechanisms of the technique, while the subsequent volume presents methodologies. This subsequent volume is reviewed separately.

Detailing methods developed in their own labs, contributors provide protocols for enzyme biosensors based on potentiometric, amperometric, conductimetric, optical, and thermal transducers; and microbial biosensors based on oxygen-gas electrode and optical techniques in which microorganisms are coupled to the signal transducer. Chapter one provides an overview of the principles relevant to the design and operational features of enzyme-based biosensors. The contents of the companion volume, are appended.
