Human activities have brought environmental pollution which biosensors can be effective tools to detect the presence of these pollutants. Whole cell biosensor is a category in biosensor design which cells are used as bioreporters, which can be coupled with different types of transducers. To date, many types of cells have been used in biosensor applications with the capability to detect vast range of pollutants, from heavy metals and pesticides, to biochemical oxygen demand. In this paper, several types of cellsbacteria, cyanobacteria, algae, plant cells, fungi, and protozoa, which were utilized in biosensors designed for environmental applications are reported. The possibility for further development of whole cellbased biosensors is review as well.
