Taking an interdisciplinary approach that emphasizes the adaptability of immunochemical and related bioanalytical methods to a variety of matrices, Immunoassay and Other Bioanalytical Techniques describes the strength and the versatility of these methods in a wide range of environmental and biological measurement applications. With contributions from leading authors drawn from varied disciplines in academia, industry, and government institutions, the book discusses the evolution of the technology and explores the wide spectrum of chemicalimmuno methods available, including multiplexed immunoassays. It presents standard and innovative applications of immunochemical and related methods, such as microarrays and sensors, examines quality assurance guidelines, and offers insight into recently developed products and procedures.

Meeting the continuing and pressing need for economical analytical methods that can detect trace levels of hazardous compounds in complex environmental and biological media, this text reviews breakthrough research, including the impact of nanotechnology. It describes the strength and versatility of immunochemical and related bioanalytical methods while highlighting other areas of applied bioanalytical methods. The book provides both a basic understanding of the field and an update on important technological advances such as new platforms and detection systems. It demonstrates how significant time and cost savings can be achieved for studies requiring repetitive analysis or having high sample loads.


A comprehensive treatise on the concepts and principles of immunochemical and bioanalytical methods.
