Abstract
Strain Comamonas testosteroni TI, capable of degrading the nonionic surfactant (NIS) nonylphenolethoxylate (OP-10), was used for constructing a pilot cellular biosensor. The lower NIS detection limit for the biosensor was 0.25 mg/l. We studied the substrate specificity of the biosensor with respect to a wide range of organic compounds: surfactants, polyaromatic compounds (PAC), carbohydrates, alcohols, etc. It was shown that the biosensor based on Comamonas testosteroni TI did not respond to glucose, which was an advantage over the formerly described biosensor based on Pseudomonas rathonis T. The amplitude of the sensor response remained stable for 10 days.
