Colloidal Biomolecules, Biomaterials, and Biomedical Applications is an authoritative presentation of established and recent techniques promising to revolutionize the areas of biomedical diagnostics, therapeutics, pharmaceutics, and drug delivery. This exceptional book details an original homogeneous assay for biomolecule detection and capture through duplex colloid particles, as well as new methods for utilizing peptides in particle agglutination. Featuring contributions from over 30 prominent researchers, it investigates physical studies of the agglutination of sensitive latexes, and indicates benefits to drug delivery through supercritical fluid process production of polymer particles.
