Chemical and Biochemical Sensors
There are various major fields of application for chemical sensors: environmental studies, quality control of chemically produced compounds and processed food and biomedical analysis, especially for medical diagnostics. In the field of environmental analysis there is a great demand for the type of continuous monitoring that only a sensor can provide, since the relevant parameter for toxicological risk assessment is always the dose (i.e., a concentration multiplied by an exposure time). The study of environmental chemistry also depends upon a continuous data output that provides not only baseline levels but also a reliable record of concentration outbursts.
