Anotation:

This course introduces the physical, electronic, biological principles of biosensors and provides information on past, present and future technologies. Various mechanisms and sensor concepts for specific applications (such as detection of glucose, urea, proteins, cells, bacteria, etc.) are explained. In addition, the course introduces the use of modern nanostructures and nanomaterials in biosensors to achieve reliable and sensitive devices for diagnosis at the point of care, in food safety or environmental monitoring. Within the course we also discuss current challenges and future perspectives for various applications of biosensors.
