Cell-Based Biosensors

Jaroslav Racek
December 09, 1995

SOME ADVANTAGES OF CELL-BASED BIOSENSORS:Isolation, purification, and immobilization of enzymes are often very difficult; these can be omitted with cell-based biosensors. Some enzymes can lose their activity during isolation or immobilization; this risk is eliminated by the use of whole cells....
