Description

Biosensors are core elements in intelligent system for monitoring and controlling natural and industrial environments. Nanotechnology offers new functionalities, enabling new types of sensors, sensing-based systems and applications. Integrated electronics have started a revolution in this field, allowing the shrink of complex electronic systems into millimeter-square sizes.

Nanotechnology has led to a dramatic improvement in the performance, sensitivity and selectivity of biosensors. Metal-oxide and carbon nanostructures, gold and magnetite nanoparticles and integration of dendrimers in biosensors using nanotechnology have contributed greatly in making biosensors more effective and affordable on a mass-market level.

Nanotechnology and Biosensors shows how nanotechnology is used to create affordable, mass-produced portable small sized biosensors to directly monitor environmental pollutants, and to integrate these into components and systems for mass market applications in food analysis, environmental monitoring and health diagnostics.

Key Features

  • Highlights nanotechnology-based approaches to the detection of enzyme inhibitors, direct enzymatic and microbial detection of metabolites and nutrients using biosensors
  • Includes examples of how nanotechnology has led to improvements in the construction of portable, selective and sensitive biosensing devices
  • Offers thorough coverage of biomarker/biosensor interaction for the rapid detection of toxicants and pollutants

Readership

Materials Scientists and Bioengineers who want to learn more about how nanotechnology can lead to more efficient, cheaper biosensors
