A potentiometric biosensor for xylose was devised utilizing Gluconobacter oxydans whole cells. Immobilization methods based on physical adsorption were used for G. oxydans cells and extracellular pH changes resulting from xylose dehydrogenation were monitored by a field effect transistor (FET). The G. oxydans, FET-based sensor detected xylose at a lower… CONTINUE READING
