Effects of high oxygen concentrations on microbial biosensor signals. Hyperoxygenation by means of perfluorodecalin.

Amperometric biosensors register oxygen depletion in response to analyte catabolism, and thus are limited by the availability of dissolved oxygen. Microbial sensors containing immobilized cells of Gluconobacter oxydans were hyperoxygenated to 400% of control levels and the effects on sensor responses to glucose were determined. Oxygenated perfluorodecalin… CONTINUE READING
