binding of a target bioanalyte to the MRE, a change in a physical parameter occurs and the transducer serves to
protein (receptor, antibody, enzyme, surface protein, ion channel), or an oligonucleotide. In addition, artificial materials
may be utilized as MREs including aptamers, peptide nucleic acids (PNAs) or molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs).
The extent of a biorecognition event is reflected in a measurable change in a physical quantity such as an optical,
