Advances in Biosensors: Reviews, Vol. 1


 Book Description


Every research and development in biosensors (as well as in any other research fields) is started from a state-of-the-art review. Such review is one of the most labor- and time consuming parts of research. It is strongly necessary to take into account and reflect in the review the current stage of development, including existing sensing principles, methods of measurements,technologies and existing devices. This open access book is intended to help researchers to find appropriate references, to read it and make a critical analysis to determine what was done well before and what was not solved till now and formulate the future scientific aims and objectives. The first volume of Advances in Biosensors: Reviews, Book Series contains seven chapters written by 14 authors from 9 countries: Australia, Bulgaria, China, Germany, Poland, Russia, Spain, Turkey and USA. We hope that readers enjoy this book and that can be a valuable tool for those who are involved in research and development different biosensors and biosensing systems.
