This volume provides comprehensive and detailed technical protocols on current biosensor and biodetection technologies and examples of their applications and capabilities. Biosensors and Biodetection: Methods and Protocols Volume 1: Optical-Based Detectors, Second Edition chapters focus on direct and indirect optical detectors including surface plasmon resonance, interferometric sensors, charge-coupled device (CCD) based detectors, spectrometry, and many other cutting-edge optical biosensors technologies. Written in the format of the highly successful series Methods in Molecular Biology, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls, and step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols.
Authoritative and practical, Biosensors and Biodetection: Methods and Protocols Volume 1: Optical-Based Detectors, Second Edition offers descriptions of major technologies by leading experts in the field in extensive technical detail. The aim of the book is to make biosensors more accessible and understandable to engineers, students, medical professionals, molecular biologists, chemical, and physical science researchers developing biosensor technologies, allowing readers to both understand the technology and to construct similar devices.
