The institution of sensor systems has transported advantages such as measurement in flammable and explosive environments, immunity to electrical noises, miniaturization, geometrical flexibility, measurement of small sample volumes, remote sensing in inaccessible sites or harsh environments and multi-sensing. Biosensors are logical devices composed of a recognition component of biological origin and a physico-chemical transducer. Immobilization plays a leading role in developing the biosensor by integrating both the above mentioned mechanisms. In this short editorial note, an analytical review of fiber-optic sensors and biosensors for the development of biosensors for environmental and clinical monitoring have been reviewed.

Keywords: Fiber-optic sensor, chemical sensor, enzymatic sensor, whole cell biosensor, immobilization of biologicals, tapered optical fiber, Optical chemical sensor, chemical equilibrium, biosensors, physico-chemical transducer, environmental and clinical monitoring.
