Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Exploring the role of medical diagnostic reagents in the practice of medicine, 24 papers review work in the areas of electrochemical biosensing systems; optical biosensing systems; newer detections systems; systems and management related to diabetes and cholesterol; and polymeric materials, immobilization, biocompatability. Specific topics include redox monomers and polymers for biosensors, evanescent- wave boisensors, recombinant photoproteins in the design of binding assays, partical valency strip assays, status of dry chemistries and diagnostic reagents, and site-directed immobilization of proteins on surfaces.
