Title

Development of a novel yeast cell assay and biosensor for detecting oestrogenic effects of environmental water samples

Entwicklung eines neuartigen Hefezell-Assays und Biosensors zur Erfassung der östrogenen Wirkung in Umweltproben

Acronym

Oestrogenic sensor

Project Reference

02WU0169

Project Duration

01.06.2001 – 31.05.2004

Partner

  1. Institut für Pflanzengenetik und Kulturpflanzenforschung, Gatersleben (Projektkoordinator)
  2. SensLab GmbH, Leipzig
  3. Universität Stuttgart, Institut für Siedlungswasserbau, Wassergüte- und Abfallwirtschaft.

Aims / tasks of SensLab

Development of the enzymic electrochemical sensor system:

Based on a genetically modified yeasts as prepared by the project partner IPK an amperometric enzyme sensor has to be developed. In presence of oestrogenic compounds yeast cells immobilized at the sensor surface will induce and express an enzyme which will be detect by the sensor applying enzymic electrochemical signal amplification.
