Biosensors are an investigative contrivance used to find a chemical substance that combines an organic component with a physicochemical detector. Various biosensors are used in different fields: electrochemical-based, immune-based, magnetic-based, thermometric-based, acoustic-based, enzyme-based, optical-based, DNA-based, and tissue-based, etc. Enzyme-based biosensors are those which use enzymes or proteins for the recognition of elements and adjoining the inbuilt specificity of enzymes. Due to their high sensitivity and specificity, these enzymatic biosensors are frequently used in numerous fields, including the health and biomedical field. This book chapter will describe the various enzyme-based biosensors, their sensitivity and specificity, and their significant applications in different fields. 

Keywords: Applications, Biosensors, Biomedical, Biotechnology, Enzymes, Quality indices.
