Application of on-line biosensors in monitoring of drinking water quality
The solution is the development and application of ultrasensitive electrochemical biosensors, where the basis is made from boron-doped nanocrystalline diamond layer ("BDNCD"), which is immobilized by sensors biomolecules such as antibodies, proteins, carbohydrates, or DNA oligonucleotides. These biomolecules are able to interact with bacterial cell surface molecules, which, together with the unique electrochemical properties of the BDNCD layer, provides the biosensors with a high detection sensitivity. Since Escherichia coli is an indicator of the fecal contamination of drinking water, it has also been chosen as a model organism for the development of this biosensor.
