Abstract

Biosensors utilize biological components to provide selectivity for monitoring compounds of environmental, clinical and industrial importance. A number of biosensors based on bacteria have recently been developed for monitoring toxic metals in the environment. The advantages and disadvantages of these types of biosensors are discussed.
