Over the years, significant research efforts have been made to engineer numerous types of bio-sensing prototypes for various applications. For instance, bio-sensing prototypes have been configured to yield requisite single measurements to meet specific requirements for a variety of concerns including uses in the biomedical research, drug discovery, the environment, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and process industries, etc. As compared to, in practice, traditional analytical approaches, biomaterials, and enzyme-based biosensors have notable advantages, e.g., (1) high sensitivity, (2) specificity, (3) portability, (4) cost-effectiveness, (5) possibilities for miniaturization and (6) mass production among others. However, the selection of biomaterial and enzyme for designing a bio-sensing prototype is an important issue. The current research progress and development in biosensor arena have gained special interests …
