Kazan State University is one of the leading research teams in the development of electrochemical biosensors for field applications. The biosensors developed were successfully examined both in laboratory and field conditions for the detection of heavy metals and pesticides in the environment, patient diseases, immunodeficiency status etc. More than 30 articles are published in the refereed journals, more than 20 articles in international journals. The research team has experience in the development of ready-to-use reliable enzymatic sensors which can be used in filed conditions.
