The world-wide needs for chemical detection and analysis rise steadily. Several reasons lead to this trend, for instance the rapid increase in the prevalence of diabetes, the increasing need for environmental and health monitoring, Ulm University's Biochemical Sensors goes more into this.



Thanks to higher sensitivity and specificity, short response times and reduction of overall costs, biosensors can be very competitive in addressing these needs when compared to traditional methods.

Ulm University's Biochemical Sensors module imparts a general overview of biosensors with different points of focus, such as the basics of chemistry and molecular biology, biological detection methods, physical transduction methods, and immobilization techniques as well as biochip technologies.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Biosensors
  • Review of the basics of chemistry and molecular biology
  • Biological detection methods: catalytic, immunologic, etc.
  • Physical transduction methods: electrochemical, optical, gravimetric, etc.
  • Immobilization techniques: adsorption, entrapment, cross-linking, covalent bonds
  • Biochip technologies: DNA and protein chips, Ion-channel devices, MEA and MTA, Implants
  • Student seminars
  • Laboratory practice with experimental demonstrations and quantitative determinations of analytes
