Dear Newsgroup,
                                  This is a question for biosensor 
Over the past 20 -30 years or so, there has been substantial research into 
the development of sensors for organo-phosphates. Some of these sensors are 
based on the inhibition of cholinesterases.

 Does anyone know if this type of sensor has ever been commercialized?

I understand that the military in the USA was interested in this type of 
sensor for monitoring nerve gases in the field; were useful sensors ever 

Can anyone point me to useful sources of information, websites etc on this
