Expert talk on “Fundamental and Applications of Biosensors”
Biosensors nowadays are ubiquitous in biomedical diagnosis as well as wide range application in Disease progression, Environmental monitoring, Food control, Drug discovery and biomedical research. Dr. V. K. Rao Scientist-G, DRDE, Guwalior, discussed elaborately the use of electrochemical techniques to develop new biosensors and the role of nanotechnology in developing Biosensors. Besides he emphasized on Bioreceptors that interacts with analyte through biological and chemical reaction to produce signals which ultimately got transformed by the Transducer.There was also discussion on Antibody/Antigen interactions and how the biosensor works on the detection of different kind of diseases. The Lecture was scheduled from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm.
