Introduction to Cell Based Sensing


A biosensor is an electronic device that employs biological elements-such as anti bodies, enzymes, receptor protiens, lectins, cells on tissue sections - as the analyte sensor and couples the elements to a transducer.
The development of cell-based biosensors in our laboratory is directed to detecting the effects of several chemical welfare stimulants on the central nervous system. We use neuronal like cells in culture. Cell culture is used frequently in both molecular and cell biology, however, it has gained significant applications in all life sciences including Engineering.
