Sensors demonstrated in continuous monitoring and biomolecular release applications

Prof Kirill Alexandrov, in collaboration with Prof Evgeny Katz of Clarkson University (USA), the Institute of Nano- and Biotechnologies (Germany), and the Institute of Complex Systems (Germany), have published first results on the use of GDH-based biosensors for the continuous monitoring of analytes and release of biomolecules.

This research opens the door for the application of GDH-based biosensors in wearables for continuous monitoring, and in even more advanced future applications, the release of biomolecules and drugs in response to biomarkers, in what could constitute a diagnostic and therapeutic combination.

Other applications include the development of biomolecular computing/logic systems, in the emerging field of electronics-biological interfacing, also described as “cyborg” bioengineering.
