Any analytical device, utilized for the detection and analyses of a bimolecular substance from a mixture is usually called as biosensor. Such device is a combination between a biological component and a physicochemical detector. Any biological compound, for example, cell surface or cell free receptor(s), enzymes, hormones, antibodies, DNA or RNA etc. can be detected. So, a material of biological sources (analyte) when interact with bio-receptor in the sensor, it enables the sensor to detect the former one. Glucometer, being a bright example of such biosensor used to detect blood sugar level. However, such detectors are scantily used in agricultural sectors, to detect, predict or speculate farmers need based demand in cultivated fields in developing counties. Countries such as India, being hugely agriculture based sub-continent, need such studies in future.

Main Text

A biosensor is usually a handy device used to instantly detect biomolecules from a complex mixture derived from biological sources, for example, blood, body fluid, urine, plasma, synovial fluid etc. Usually it is employed for instant detection of biochemical in body or tissue fluids. It normally constitutes five basic components [1]. They are a bio-recognition site, biotransducer component, and electronic system that act as signal amplifier, processor, and display. Transducers and electronics can be combined together in a microsensor system. The recognition component that detects the biochemical is usually called as a bio-receptor. It includes a particular bio-receptor (present on the recognition site) interaction with the analytes to detect the later one [2]. The intensity of interaction usually corresponds to the concentration of the analytic and is measured by the bio-transducer [3]. The interaction is measured by the signals that are received due to the interaction of the target analyte in the sample with bio-receptor (Figure 1). If the signal is low then it is magnified by the amplifier and processed to be displayed in the display of the biosensor [3].
