Biosensors for Environmental Monitoring

National Exposure Research Laboratory in Las Vegas (NERL-LV) is conducting research on biosensors for
environmental monitoring applications. This research
is designed to address a critical and growing need for real-time and in situ monitoring devices which can be
used at Superfund sites and RCRA facilities, as well as for ground water monitoring. Because biosensor technology lends itself to fast, economical and continuous
monitoring capabilities, development of these systems to complement classical analytical measurements is
expected to result in a substantial cost benefit, especially when sample turnaround time and cost per analysis are important issues. Biosensors are currently being considered
for development for detection of environmental pollutants such as phenols, genotoxins, and pesticides
such as organophosphates, 2,4-D, etc.
