Examines diverse approaches to the basic problems of microsizing analytical instrumentation, including the use of intact crustacea antenna, various forms of redox reactions, use of antibody-medicated reactions, and optical- and spectrophotometric-based methods.… See more details below

Overview


Presents a contemporary discussion of currently available and potential applications of biosensors. Examines diverse approaches to the basic problems of microsizing analytical instrumentation, including the use of intact crustacea antenna, various forms of redox reactions, use of antibody-medicated reactions, and optical- and spectrophotometric-based methods. Describes requirements for using biosensors in experiments conducted in space as well as an interesting approach to the development of more efficient procedures for commercialization of biosensor technologies.

Discusses the currently available and potential applications of biosensors, emphasizing the diverse approaches to the basic problem of microsizing analytical instrumentation. The methods explored range from the use of intact crustacea antenna to using physical spectroscopy to coax both biological and physical substances into service as analytical tools. The 15 papers are from a symposium at the April 1991 meeting of the American Chemical Society, and comprise a sister volume to Biosensors and Chemical Sensors: Optimizing Performance Through Polymeric Materials (see the June 1992 SciTech Book News) derived from the same gathering.
