Bioelectronic noses benefit from the naturally optimized molecular affinities and intrinsic sensitivities of bioreceptors towards odorants. Utilizing Odorant Binding Proteins from insects and vertebrates, we show how an array of diverse odor sensors can be achieved for targeted applications.
Bioelectronic Noses – an emerging field
