    Describes a fluid level sensor which provides a new approach to fluid level measurement. It has no moving parts, requires no maintenance, the sensing element can be easily manufactured and it is capable of measuring more than one fluid level and fluid levels in the presence of contaminants. The control electronics can be remote from the sensing element and the output from the control electronics c... View full abstract»

    A variety of biosensor configurations have been explored which may find applications ranging from fermentation monitoring and control of separation processes to shelf life prediction and quality assurance. Two general categories of biological components are distinguished: biocatalysts and bioreceptors. A range of physical and chemical transducers are available to monitor the biological recognition...

    Discusses the development of biosensing devices which runs parallel to activities in physical measurement techniques. Biosensors rely on interfacial properties (electro-optic and electro-chemical) and require direct contact with the sample. Surface electrode arrays are sensitised to particular analytes by the deposition of suitable affinity and electron mediation compounds. Devices based on ferroc... View full abstract»
