After the talk, Dr. Louis was taken on a guided tour around the various laboratories housed in the Physics Department at the School of Science and Engineering building. He was delighted to see the kind of facilities and equipment LUMS is offering to its faculty and students and expressed good wishes for future endeavors.
Jean Louis Marty from Universite de Perpignan, delivered an exciting talk on Biosensors. These sensors are analytical devices incorporating a biological material, or biomimic, intimately associated with or integrated within a physicochemical transducer or transducing microsystem. The main advantages of biosensors are short times of analysis, low cost of assays, portable equipment, real-time measurements, and use as remote devices. Dr. Louis shared that these new technologies have been applied in the quantitaforve analysis of target analytes. The best example is the glucose biosensor for the control of sugar for diabetes.
