Abstract: This chapter provides a general overview to the field of biosensors, many different types of which are described in much greater detail in the following chapters. There exists a vast range of published literature on biosensors and a wide variety of construction methods. Within this chapter we compare some of the most common approaches and in this context describe recognition receptors to construct and utilize biosensing platforms. The earliest sensor systems were based on enzymes because of their inherent selectivity and enzyme-based biosensors are described first. The other commonly used natural and artificial receptors including nucleic acids, antibodies, aptamers, peptides and molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) are listed later on with several key examples of corresponding biosensor platforms
