Biosensors are analytical devices that combine a biologically sensitive element with a physical or chemical transducer to selectively and quantitatively detect the presence of specific compounds. Balancing basics, principles, and case studies, Biosensors: Microelectrochemical Devices covers the theory and applications of one class of biosensor-microelectrochemical devices. The book clearly explains microelectronic techniques used to produce these cheap, fast reacting, and disposable sensors with the aid of helpful diagrams and tables. Researchers and postgraduates active in the field of chemical sensors, analytical chemistry, or microelectronics will find this an invaluable reference.
