SENSORS BASED ON BIOMEMBRANES FOR

THE DETECTION OF TOXINS AND POLLUTANTS

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is a biosensor?

A biosensor is a device for the detection of an analyte that combines a biological component with a physicochemical detector component.

 

What is a biomembrane-based biosensor?

A biomembrane-based biosensor uses a biological membrane as the biological component or sensing element.

 

What is a biomembrane-active compound?

A biomembrane-active compound has an affinity for accumulation in the biomembrane.
