Transistor coupled with plant organelle for real time monitoring

The LiU team has presented a biosensor that is able to detect, in real time, glucose export from isolated chloroplasts with time resolution of 1 minute. The biosensor is based on the organic electrochemical transistor that is functionalized with a glucose specific enzyme. The chloroplasts are integrated directly on the sensors that can distinguish the…

Implantation of electronic devices into leaves of plants

HyPhOE researchers at Linköping University, Sweden have successfully managed to implant an ion pump into the leaves of the tobacco plant. The ion pump was used to deliver a plant hormone, ABA, into the leaves, without causing any damage to the plant. The results are now published in the journal Small, Advanced Science News: Implantable…
