Overview

This volume of NtLS presents a broad range of characterization methods and technologies as applicable to life science on the nanoscale. It aims to serve as a single source of information that gathers up the knowledge otherwise spread out over many journal articles, and offers a picture of the whole to members of all involved disciplines.

Fluorescence imaging with nanoprobes, scanning probe techniques, antibody-based microbalance measuring, NMR, X-ray, FT-IR, ESR, and atom probe tomography are featured specifically for their applicability to materials used in and for biological and physiological environments, in particular, for medicine, healthcare, pharmaceuticals and human wellness.

Biochemists, biologists, chemists, materials scientists, and materials engineers as well as all others working in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries or at related research institutions will find this book of great value and importance.
