Focusing on the rapidly increasing interaction between biotechnology and advanced fiberoptics/electronics, Biosensors with Fiberoptics emphasizes the three major phases of the developmental process from concept to marketplace: research, development, and applications.
With contributions by leading experts directly involved in key areas of this exciting, fast-paced field, the book describes novel biosensor technologies and such current and potential applications as: chemical sensing - fluorescent labels - evanescent-wave biosensors and immunosensors - clinical applications - immunoassay kinetics - luminescence - monitoring of environmental toxins.
Researchers and clinicians in a broad spectrum of disciplines will find Wise and Wingard's Biosensors with FIBEROPTICS an extremely practical, up-to-date reference text.
Many of the key issues are well covered in this book which must be recommended as a necessary addition to any biosensor library.-The Genetic Engineer & Biotechnologist
