Abstract: The response of a peroxidase-based optical biosensor was modelled digitally.A mathematical model of the optical biosensor is based on a system of non-linear reaction-diffusion equations. The modelling biosensor comprises two compartments, an enzyme layerand an outer diffusion layer. The digital simulation was carried out using finite differencetechnique. The influence of the substrate concentration as well as of the thickness of both theenzyme and diffusion layers on the biosensor response was investigated. Calculations showedcomplex kinetics of the biosensor response, especially at low concentrations of the peroxidaseand of the hydrogen peroxide.
Keywords: optical biosensor; peroxidase; modelling; simulation.
