Smell of success for nanobiosensors
...noses respond to different odours. This new nose biosensor
is unusual in how it's made. By placing a layer of proteins that constitute the olfactory receptors in animal noses on a microelectrode and measuring the reaction when the proteins come into contact with different odorants, the system is capable of d...
