Angaben zur Abhaltung
The block course will start by introducing the field of biosensors including the medical and economic drivers for important applications. We will cover basic operation principles of the different biosensor classes, give the theoretical background for electrochemical and optical transduction mechanisms and introduce the types of biorecognition elements used in current sensor concepts. We will then proceed to discuss in detail major biosensor classes and architectures including application examples ranging from molecular to cell-based sensors. We will highlight disposable sensors and fabrication methods for point-of-care applications and finally address recent developments in new sensor concepts based on single-molecule techniques and stochastic sensing.

Course topics (example):
• Introduction to biosensors: historical developments, applications and predicted trends
• Introduction to biological recognition elements for sensor concepts
• Physical transduction mechanisms
• Enzymatic sensor concepts and selected examples (glucose oxidase enzyme electrode)
• DNA-sensors
• Immunosensors
• Cell-based biosensors
• In-vivo biosensors
• Disposable biosensors in point-of-care applications: Concepts and fabrication
• Advanced biosensor methods (stochastic detection, single-molecule techniques)
After participation in this course, the student is able to:
1. describe the different biorecognition elements and their application in biosensors
2. describe the major classes of point-of-care biosensors

3. understand the major principles employed in current electrochemical biosensor designs.
4. carry out bioelectronic measurements with relevance to on-chip neuroscience
5. analyze stochastic sensing experiments based on single-particle detection techniques
6. evaluate cell-chip coupling experiments
  • English
  • German

The course comprises introductory block lectures (2 SWS) and a block practical course (4 SWS). The lectures will introduce the students to the concepts of biosensors and cell-based bioelectronics. During the lab course, the students will carry out and analyze state-of-the-art bioelectronics and sensor experiments. Thereby the students will achieve a deeper understanding and learn to apply the topics of the module in a research environment. In combination, this will help the students to acquire the teaching goals, which are listed above.

The lecture is offered in combination with the practical class as a 2-week block course during the semester break.
Presence: 90 hrs
Self study/report: 90 hrs
Total workload: 180 hrs
Für die Anmeldung zur Teilnahme müssen Sie sich in TUMonline als Studierende*r identifizieren.
Note: The practical class can only be taken together with the corresponding block lecture.
