Chemists at the Moscow Lomonosov State University (MSU) earlier this year came up with a range of biosensors based on what’s known as Prussian Blue (PB).
The developers expect their new biosensors to be potentially used in an array of wearable devices for noninvasive monitoring of glucose and lactic acid.
According to the team, it’s the first generation of PB-based biosensors stabilized with nickel hexacyanoferrate (NiHCF); labile lactate oxidase was also used in the process.
The project is said to demonstrate twice the operational stability of PB-NiHCF bilayer based biosensors and labile lactate oxidase compared to non-modified Prussian Blue based biosensors.
