Biosensors based on acrylic microgels: a comparative study of immobilized glucose oxidase and tyrosinase.


Acrylic microgels are proposed as enzyme immobilizing support in amperometric biosensors. Two enzymes, glucose oxidase and tyrosinase, were entrapped in this matrix and their behaviour is compared. The optimum cross-linking of the polymeric matrix required to retain the enzyme, and to allow the diffusion of the substrate is different for each enzyme, 3.2… (More)
