About this book

Biosensors combine biological recognition elements and signal conversion elements into a biodetection system. They have been developed for a wide variety of biodetection applications, offering the advantages of increased speed and ease of use compared to traditional detection methods. In Biosensors and Biodetection: Methods and Protocols, leading experts describe the major technologies in the field in extensive technical detail, allowing readers both to understand the technology and to construct similar devices. Volume 1: Optical-Based Detectors delves into direct and indirect optical detectors, including methods involving surface plasmon resonance, interferometric sensors, CCD based detectors, and spectrometers, among many other cutting-edge technologies. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include brief introductions to the subjects, lists of the necessary materials, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and Notes sections, which highlight tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Comprehensive and up-to-date, Biosensors and Biodetection: Methods and Protocols is an ideal, user-friendly guide to this vital, versatile technology and a perfect tool for those who wish to further the field.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a well written, comprehensive and up-to-date, user-friendly guide to essential information about direct and indirect optical detectors … . the book is written for engineering, chemical and physical science researchers who are developing biosensing technologies, as well as biologists and clinicians. It is also useful as a teaching tool for bioengineering, biomedical engineering, and biology faculty and students. … The clarity of the explanations of important and complex topics and the user friendly quality of the book make it unique." (Omer Iqbal, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2009)
