Biosensors for Biological Warfare Agent Detection (Review Paper)
Keywords: Biosensors, optical biosensors, electrochemical biosensors, piezoelectric biosensors, biological warfare agents
AbstractBiological warfare agents (BWA) such as Bacillus anthracis, Francisella tularensis, Yersiniapestis or butulotoxin represent one of possibilities exploitable by military or terrorists. Rapiddetection of BWA is one of the most important presumptions prerequisities for successful defenceagainst them. The detection devices–biosensors–can be divided according to theirphysicochemical transducers to electrochemical, optical, and piezoelectric groups. A comparisonof classical detection methods with biosensors is also given.
