Overview

Sensors for Chemical and Biological Applications provides an overview and detailed discussion of the potential of chemical and biochemical sensors in medical science, food quality, biological, and environmental applications. Examining the role of nanotechnology in sensor development, it explores how sensors confront challenges of chemical-bioterrorism through enhanced specificity, fast response times, and the ability to determine multiple hazardous substances. It also includes practical examples of sensor usage such as cholesterol monitoring along with extensive references. This reference supplies versatile, hands-on tools for professionals working in a broad array of disciplines.
