immunosensorsmedical dictionary

An antibody that serves as the biological component of a biosensor. Biosensors typically have a biological component and a detection component.

The biological component confers selectivity on the sensor, and the detection component turns it into a recognisable 'signal.' Immunosensors detect the tiny changes in mass that occur when an antibody binds to an antigen.
