Nanobiosensor approaches for pollutant monitoring

  • Bambang KuswandiEmail author


The presence of pollutants at trace levels in the environment is a major health issue, but there are actually few rapid analytical techniques that meet the growing demand for environmental pollution control. Nanobiosensors thus appear as a powerful alternative to conventional analytical techniques, because nanobiosensors enable the highly sensitive, real-time, and high-frequency monitoring of pollutants without extensive sample preparation. Nanobiosensors are expected to be integrated into small devices for rapid screening and monitoring of a wide variety of pollutants.
