Biomarkers and Biosensors offers thorough coverage of biomarker/biosensor interaction, current research trends, and future developments in applications of drug discovery. This book is useful to researchers in this field as well as clinicians interested in new developments in early detection and diagnosis of disease or the mode of operation of biomarkers. Biomarkers and Biosensors also emphasizes kinetics, and clearly delineates how this influences the biomarker market.

Key Features

  • Offers thorough coverage of the kinetics of biomarker interaction with the biosensor surface
  • Provides evidence-based approach to evaluate effectiveness
  • Provides pharmaceutical chemists the possibilities and methodology in assessing the effectiveness of new drugs
  • Provides the information needed for the selection of the best biomarker for a specific application


Pharmaceutical chemists, chemists, analytical chemists, chemical engineers, biomedical/biochemical engineers, biotechnologists, biophysicists, working in the research and development of biomarkers and biosensors. More than 20,000 academics are listed in MDR under this topic
