Benzene is determined by a biosensor based on human kidney tissue as biological component. Dioxygenase catalyse substrate oxidation. The useful analytical range results to be complementary to that of one or more traditional models based on Pseudomonas. The biosensors has got an other aim as its functioning is able to clear up the degradation pathways of benzene. The behavior of a biosensor based on cancerous human kidney tissue compared to healthy one let to hypothize a poor activity of dioxygenase in cancerous kidney, possibly to be tested with prevention strategy.
