One neurotransmitter, glutamate, is crucial for the development and maintenance of synapses as well as for the processes of consciousness, memory, and learning. Abnormal levels of glutamate in the body can lead to various risks of neurological diseases. The existing tools for detecting glutamate levels have several drawbacks. They are time-consuming and expensive. Besides that, less research or development has been done on glutamate biosensors than on other types of biosensors. In this review, the development of electrochemical glutamate biosensors was discussed. A review of the analyte, enzymes used, immobilization techniques, materials used, and analysis findings regarding linear range, detection limit, and sensitivity has been performed in order to develop a glutamate biosensor. The non-enzymatic electrochemical glutamate sensor can continue to be developed for promising enzyme-free glutamate biosensors.
