Description

Bioimpedance and Spectroscopy is a comprehensive gateway into the applications of bioimpedance and relevant aspects of its instrumentation, which presents cutting-edge knowledge in an accessible and simplified way. Written by experts from across the field, this book offers a rare focus on applied engineering and instrumentation, covering both theory and practical applications. This text will guide you towards successful experiments and leads to practical examination of the properties of different biological structures, whether single cells, tissues or whole organ systems, by: Revealing how the underlying processes of the bioimpedance spectroscopy enhance classic understanding of the impedance measurement Introducing new instrumentation methods and applications Warning against some common pitfalls and caveats Explaining historical perspectives, solutions to engineering problems and real-world case studies of how this technology has been successfully applied Clear and practical, this book lays out essential requirements, typical challenges, and common compromises for both students and engineers in the field. Students of data acquisition and impedance measurement, graduate students in biomedical engineering, and engineers of practical measurement solutions will also find this book useful.
