Paper Abstract

Environmental assessment is important to evaluate the overall health and ecological impact of domestic and industrial wastes. Biosensors are kinds of analytical devices which consist of biomaterials and transducers. Photoluminescence of recombinant E.coli containing lux related genes were used as indicators of environmental pollutions. This paper deals with sensitive and rapid optical sensing systems for monitoring BOD (Biochemical Oxygen Demand), toxic compounds and mutagens.
