    A biosensor is an analytical device, used for the detection of an analyte, that combines a biological component with a physicochemical detector. ⁕the sensitive biological element, a biologically derived material or biomimetic component that interacts the analyte under study. The biologically sensitive elements can also be created by biological engineering. ⁕the transducer or the detector element that transforms the signal resulting from the interaction of the analyte with the biological element into another signal that can be more easily measured and quantified; ⁕biosensor reader device with the associated electronics or signal processors that are primarily responsible for the display of the results in a user-friendly way.
