Biosensor Research Group

Dr Janice Limson’s research is primarily in the field of electrochemical chemosensors, biosensors, biofuel cells and nanobiotechnology. Emphasis is placed on the research of immobilization protocols for nanostructured materials, enzymes and other electrocatalysts onto working electrodes surfaces; as well as the identification of new membrane surfaces for enzyme or protein entrapment. Current projects include novel laccase biosensors for phenolic analysis and pesticide degradant analysis in the agricultural sector and in honeybees. We also work closely with the Neurosciences Research Group at Rhodes University in the identification of metal-ligand interactions of toxicological significance in humans and also in gauging protein-protein interactions using quartz crystal microbalance technology.
