What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“At the same time, I would like to note the uniqueness of the monograph for the coverage of the main directions of analytical instrument making and in the clear and intelligible presentation of the material. This text can useful for students, graduate students, and experts working in both the development of new methods of analysis and in applied analytics.” (Journal of Analytical Chemistry, 2011)

"…the figures presented in the work offer a thorough insight into the instrumentation currently available, including the theoretical models, internal components, and full external instrument. The level of detail presented will be useful for students." (CHOICE, May 2008)
