Specialization :   Electrochemical Sensors/Biosensors

Our prime attention is to probe the sensing event at measurable rate based on electrochemical processes for reliable electrochemical biosensor design having commercial viability involving active role of electron transfer relays, nanomaterials/functional nanomaterials.(see details at http://sensors-vns.com/ Technological designs include our interest on investigating mass and charge transport across membrane matrixes under both linear and non-linear regime and photoelectrochemistry of chlorophyll, bacteriorhodopsin and Prussian blue-ruthenium bipyridyl nanocomposite. The development of display system with suitable electronics along with designing of printed circuit board as per requirement of sensing devices is of concern.
