1 2 Colorimetric and potentiometric biosensors based on enzymes; for detection of Pb(II) ions in milk Potentiometry ion selective electrode (ISE) To detect the Pb(II) ions in milk Milk Lower limit of detection was 38.6µm.At 4°C,the stability of enzyme membranes was more than 60 days. The detection limit of 9.66µm was obsereved,as a response of ion selective electrode to the change of ammonium ion concentration as a result of inhibition of urease by Pb(II) ions. This biosensor can effectively be used for the detection of lead in other samples too. 2 3 Development of functionalized lnN quantum dots based potentiometric glucose biosensors.

Determination of Urea Urea To work with wide range of urea concentrations,at pH closer to 5,urease-NH4+ ISE must be used.For determination of low concentration and high sensitivity,working with buffer free solution,H+-I SE should be used Carbon electrodes using carbon nanotubes as a transducer is a useful tool for urea determination. This is relatively fast and simple approach for the determination of urea. 7 8 development of potentiometric urea biosensor based on immobilized fullerene-urease bio-conjugate.

Urea The pH and concentration of phodphate buffer to use in this biosensor was 7.0 and 0.5mM respectively. Fullerene was synthesized and used for the development of urea biosensor which was successfully applied for urea determination.The biosensor’s sensitivity was 59.67±0.
91 mV/decade that is close to theoretical value. The use of fullerene and acrylic membrane prevent the leaching of urease and sustain its activity due to which stability of urea biosensor is upto 140 days. 8 9 Potentiometric urea biosensor based on thiophene copolymer Potentiometry indium tin oxide (ITO) glass electrodes.
