The aim of the present work is to study the pre-steady state signal of a fibre-optical lactose biosensor in which lactose hydrolysis and the consequent oxidation of the hydrolysis products are going on in parallel with lactose hydrolysis being the limiting step of the system, and to find optimal conditions for data acquisition and calculation of parameters that can be applied for biosensor calibration based on the transient phase response of the system.
