This book provides a comprehensive overview of the use of noble metal nanoparticles for bioimaging and biosensing. It starts with a review on the synthesis, characterization, optical properties, and bioconjugation of noble metal nanoparticles, followed by introduction of various biodetection techniques based on noble metal nanoparticles. In between these topics, microfabrication of biosensing chips and the use of microfluidics to enhance biosensing performance are discussed.
"This book presents an extensive collection covering topics ranging from the fundamental principles of noble metal nanoparticles to their versatile bioapplications. It provides a deep insight into the multidisciplinary approach of noble metal nanoparticles in bioimaging and biosensing, especially for young scientists seeking inspiration from cutting-edge technologies all over the world."
