About this book

In recent years, large-scale advances in technology have led to greater understanding of the world on a much tinier scale: the biomolecular level. In Micro and Nano Technologies in Bioanalysis: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers from across the globe explore the technology which makes this analysis possible, investigating the worlds of microfluidics and nanotechnologies, and examining physical science techniques for the separation, detection, manipulation, and analysis of biomolecules. This volume contains innovative protocols on the application of microfluidics and the utilization of physical science-related technologies that will prove to be invaluable in the field of molecular biology. Chapters contain cutting edge applications of emerging nanotechnologies, including quantum dots and molecular fluorescence for the imaging and tracking of biomolecules. Composed in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, each chapter contains a brief introduction, step-by-step methods, a list of necessary materials, and a Notes section which shares tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Comprehensive and groundbreaking, Micro and Nano Technologies in Bioanalysis: Methods and Protocols is a necessary tool for cellular biologists, biochemists, microbiologists, geneticists and medical researchers alike.

 

Reviews

From the reviews: “This book provides a comprehensive overview of different modern methods with acknowledged practical interest. … this book can be considered as unique and highly valuable. … This book can be recommended for scientists, technicians and students in the fields of molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, microbiology, genetics, medical research and analytical chemistry. … This book is an excellent source for interested users to learn about recent developments of emerging microtechnologies and nanotechnologies for bioanalysis.” (Rosario Pereiro, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, November, 2009) “This book describes specific micro and nano techniques used in analyzing functions in both individual cells and animal models. It includes details and tips for using these methods. … Written for scientists at many different levels, the book includes specific step-by-step instructions in each chapter that would be useful for senior scientists as well as bench technical assistants. … will be a valuable resource for biomedical scientists.” (Rebecca T. Horvat, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2010)
