Review Paper: In Vivo Biosensors

Our latest review paper “Microfabricated, amperometric, enzyme-based biosensors for in vivo applications” has been published online in the journal Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry (Springer).



The article summarizes and critically evaluates the state of the art in electrochemical biosensors for in vivo applications. Special focus lies on current microfabrication technologies for such sensor platforms and a unique, comprehensive comparison of the performance of enzymatic in vivo sensors. 

Beyond the measurement of blood glucose, such glutamate or lactate sensors are used for the fast and precise in situ measurement of energy and neurotransmitter metabolism in various biomedical fields, particularly in the neurosciences. That includes the research on the causes and therapy of neurodegenerative diseases, cancer or stroke.
