1. An optical sensor for detecting target analytes in a fluid, said sensor comprising:

  • a fluid-permeable, textured dye substrate having a high surface area and high surface area to volume ratio, said substrate having high open porosity, said substrate having high permeability to fluids; and

    a dye compound dispersed on a plurality of internal and external surfaces within said textured dye substrate, said dye compound providing a characteristic optical response when subjected to excitation light energy in the presence of said target analytes.
