Biosensors and Modern Biospecific Analytical Techniques further expands the Comprehensive Analytical Chemistry series' coverage of rapid analysis based on advanced technological developments. This 12-chapter volume summarizes the main developments in the biosensors field over the last 10 years. It provides a comprehensive study on the different types of biosensors, including DNA-based, enzymatic, optical, self-assembled monolayers and the third generation of biosensors. As well as many technological developments on bioanalytical microsystems and new materials for biosensors, antibody and immunoassay developments have a prominent place in the book.

Key Features

* Provides a comprehensive study on the different types of biosensors * Applications covered include environmental analysis, bioprocess monitoring and biomedicine * An indispensable resource for those working in analytical chemistry


This book should prove very useful to analytical chemists in academia, research, industry and government and also to postgraduate students following masters courses in analytical chemistry.
