Book Description

Research on new sensing concepts has opened the door to a wide variety of microsystems for clinical applications. Such devices are extremely useful for delivering diagnostic information in a fast, simple, and low cost fashion. This book is one of the first to focus on the use of nanotechnology in diagnostics. Designed as a broad survey of the field, this book combines contributions by international experts from divergent fields of study ranging from single molecule diagnostics to cell based systems.
