A Review Article on Biosensors



bioterrorism, bio- agents, biosensors, transducer, wireless sensor


With the increasing threat of bioterrorism the detection of bio-agents has become a more challenging task. Thus, biosensors are the reliable and accurate solution to this. The biosensors are the combination of a transducer and the biological element. The transducer tends to change the bio signals and then calibrate it through a systemic scale. The researchers from different fields like physics, chemistry, material science, vlsi, have come up and have developed the more sensitive and reliable biosensors, Those biosensing devices have also vast number of applications in the field of biotechnology, medicine, agriculture, and even in bioterrorism. Different types of wireless sensors along with the case studies are produced in this article.
