Biosensors and Their Application in Healthcare
Biological sensors are optical, electrical, piezoelectrical devices that have the ability to detect biological compounds, such as nucleic acids and proteins. The need for rapid, simple hand-held testing devices in medicine has driven a strong interest in biosensor development for clinical purposes in recent years. In this eight-chapter work, international experts share their valuable studies in the area of biosensors to provide a state-of-the-art overview to inform and inspire researchers at all levels.
