Executive Summary :

The objective of this project is detection of endosulfan residue using novel biosensor platform of aptamers and antibodies specific for endosulfan. The novel biosensor platform will be primarily based on electrochemical/colorimetricl sensing technology that will be based on measurement of analyte concentrations and changes will be recorded in the form of current or voltage/color.
