Biosensors and Their Applications in Healthcare
Part of the Analytical Chemistry eBook Collection
Edited by Dilsat Ozkan-Ariksoysal
Biological sensors are optical, electrical, piezoelectrical devices that have the ability to detect biological compounds, such as nucleic acids and proteins. The need for rapid, simple hand-held testing devices in medicine has driven a strong interest in biosensor development for clinical purposes in recent years. In this eight-chapter work, international experts share their valuable studies in the area of biosensors to provide a state-of-the-art overview to inform and inspire researchers at all levels.
