Biochemical Sensors / Biochemische Sensoren in Ulm (Donau) - Seminar / Kurs von Universität Ulm

Ein Kurs unter der Leitung von Dott. Alberto Pasquarelli, Institut für Electronische Bauelemente und Schaltungen, Universität Ulm


The world-wide needs for chemical detection and analysis rise steadily. Several reasons lead to this trend, for instance the rapid increase in the prevalence of diabetes, the increasing need for environmental and health monitoring, new legislative standards for food and drugs quality control or even the early detection of biological and chemical terror attacks. Thanks to higher sensitivity and specificity, short response times and reduction of overall costs, biosensors can be very competitive in addressing these needs when compared to traditional methods.

Contents of the course program are:

  • Introduction to biosensors
  • Review of the basics of chemistry and molecular biology
  • Biological detection methods: catalytic, immunologic, etc.
  • Physical transduction methods: electrochemical, optical, gravimetric, etc.
  • Immobilization techniques: adsorption, entrapment, cross-linking, covalent bonds
  • Biochip technologies: DNA and protein chips, Ion-channel devices, MEA and MTA, Implants
  • Student seminars
  • Laboratory practice with experimental demonstrations and quantitative determinations of analytes


After finishing the program, students can describe basic principles, mechanisms of action and applications of biosensors in different scenarios. Participants are able to explain the chemical and physical fundamentals of biosensing. They are further able to analyze biosensors, break-down complex sensors in their elementary components and identify and evaluate every individual function in the information flow, from recognition to transduction and transmission.

Students are even capable of predicting the effects of elementary components in an integrated biosensor application. They asses the clinical and industrial applications, differentiate biosensor market sectors regarding technical and economical properties, e.g. commodities for everyday consumer needs or professional equipment for research. Furthermore, they are able to reflect and critically analyze research in the field of biosensors. Finally students are capable of developing appropriate concepts and designs for given biosensing problems in industry and academia. They are further able to independently derive original solutions for new problems.


Required for participation is a first academic degree.

Basic knowledge of chemistry and biochemistry help in understanding the biological part of biosensors.

The course is a module in the master study programs Sensorsystemtechnik and Biopharmazeutisch-Medizintechnische Wissenschaften of Ulm University (Master of Science).
