NOVEL APPLICATIONS OF MICROBIAL FUEL CELLS IN SENSORS AND BIOSENSORS
Ivars-Barcelo, F., A. Zuliani, M. Fallah, M. Mashkour, M. Rahimnejad, and R. Luque.
Applied Science 8(7):1184(2018)

An overview of new applications of microbial fuel cells (MFC) in sensors includes the provision of required electrical current and power for remote sensors and detection of pollutants, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), and specific DNA strands by MFCs without an external analytical device. The reviewers also discuss procedures of MFC operation as a power supply for pH, temperature, and organic loading rate sensors and explore self-powered biosensors of toxicity, pollutants, and BOD. https://www.mdpi.com/2076-3417/8/7/1184/htm
