Immunoassay Automation: A Practical Guide describes automation of immunoassay from the practical viewpoint of the clinical laboratory. General introduction and evaluation sections demonstrate principles and practice. A comprehensive selection of available systems are detailed by experts, with a view towards popularity, technical advances, and operational efficiency. This laboratory guide is essential for practitioners in clinical chemistry laboratories, and will have lasting value in the evolution of automated systems.
Focuses on automation of immunoassay for the clinical laboratory Emphasizes principles, method evaluation, and the systems approach Aids system selection by evaluation of technical, clinical, operational, and economical parameters Contains complete descriptions by experts on the latest automated immunoassay systems Based upon the editor's well-received workshops on automated immunoassay
Directors, researchers, students, and technicians in clinical chemistry laboratories, medical technologists; physicians, clinical and basic researchers in university, medical, and industrial settings.
