Discover new and emerging applications of colloidal nanoparticles. Dr. Abdelhamid Elaissari, internationally respected author and researcher, reports on and analyzes a broad range of important findings from new studies on the use of colloidal nanoparticles in biomedical, food, and environmental diagnostics and analyses. Throughout the presentation, the book uses a blend of classical tools, including optical microscopy, atomic force microscopy, microsystems, and microfluidics, to help you take full advantage of colloidal nanoparticles for your own research and applications.

Among the key topics covered are: The evolution in malaria disease detection, from parasite visualization to colloidal-based rapid diagnostics, Biospecific reactions by affinity latexes, from diagnostics to multiplex assays, Fluorescent colloidal particles as detection tools in biotechnology systems, Gas sensors based on ultrathin films of conducting polymers and nanocomposites, Force measurements between emulsion droplets as a new tool for medical diagnostics, Electrical detection of antibodies from human serum based on the insertion of gold-labeled secondary antibodies into microgaps and nanogaps.

Special attention is given to the use of particles and reactive particles for in vitro biomedical diagnostics. In addition, the book explores many unusual nanoparticles with interesting and helpful applications. Biotechnological systems are presented and illustrated using examples of actual applications, helping you progress from theory to application.

The first book to present and analyze the great potential of colloidal nanoparticles across a broad range of biotechnology applications, this guide will give youthe information you need to develop your own important applications and help you to harness these particles' full potential.
