Meet the super-sensitive, super-fast biosensor

A new class of biosensor has been developed to detect exceptionally small traces of contaminants in liquids in just 40 minutes.

Known as a biochemiresistor, it meets the challenge of a sensor that is not only super-sensitive to the presence of chemical compounds but responds quickly.

The sensor has the potential to be used for detecting drugs, toxins and pesticides for biomedical or environmental analysis.
