Enzyme sensors are a major part of biosensorics - technology, which currently represents a mature analogue to instrumental analytical techniques in areas of clinical diagnostics and is the leading technology in point-of-care analysis. Enzyme biosensors employ the affinity and selectivity of catalytically active proteins, towards their target molecules. Typically, (enzyme, usually immobilized on/within the surface of transducer - acts as a catalyst when interacting with the analyte, represented by its substrate, inhibitor, co-substrate or co-factor, while the enzyme itself remains unchanged.
