Biosensors based on intelligent polymeric systems

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Two approaches for the development of biosensors based on intelligent polymeric systems are presented. The first approach is based on the change of polymeric hydrogel electrical properties as a result of its swelling when exposed to glucose. This is achieved by the entrapment of glucose oxidase into pH-sensitive hydrogel. The second approach is based on the degradation of starch by α-amylase which is dependent upon the concentration of calcium in the environment.
