This volume discusses major issues in optical, acoustic and electroche mical-based biosensors, biochips, sensing recognition elements, and bi osensors for medical and environmental applications. The papers presen ted at the conference represent basic and applied research studies in the fields of diagnostic assays and biosensor development. Novel techn ologies, such as arrays of sensors using high-density fiber optics to sense labeled or unlabeled oligonucleotides, and patterned arrays of r ecognition elements, demonstrated the capability of biosensors to anal yze multiple analytes.
