									                  BIOSENSORS AND INSTRUMENTATON

1. Introduction
       Concepts and components of a biosensor - principles of operation,
integration of biosensor in instrumentation.

2. Preparation of biosensor
      Biomolecules used in biosensors and their properties, general
Immobilization techniques for (Optical-detection biosensor, thermal-detection
biosensor, electrochemical biosensor etc.,) behaviour of different types of

3. Types of biosensor
      Enzyme based biosensor; (glucose biosensor, cholesterol biosensor),
microbial immunobiosensor and their characteristics.

4. Applications of biosensors
      Validation (Specificity, Speed, Simplicity, Capability), application of
biosensor in environment, Microbiology: bacterial and viral analysis, Food and
beverage production and analysis, Clinical Diagnosis.

5. Instrumentation of biosensor
      Transducers: Optical transducers, Fluroescensce transducers, Acoustic
      Polarizable and non-polarizable electrodes acoustic, plasmon
resonance, holographic and microengineered sensors for monitoring low
molecular weight anlaytes, proteins, DNA and whole cells.
