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…
