Nanobioanalytical Approaches to Medical Diagnostics (Paperback)
Nanobioanalytical Approaches to Medical Diagnostics reviews a range of nanobiomaterials and bioanalytical nano-devices for medical diagnostics. Nanobiomaterials and nano-devices are used in various bioanalytical and biochemical systems to provide real-time, point-of-care diagnostics. The specialized properties of nanoparticles allow them to be engineered and adapted to produce the required effect within a bioanalytical or biochemical system - offering targeted and detailed diagnostic results in a range of biomedical applications.
This book covers both traditional biochemical and modern, combined nano-approaches to medical diagnostics. Chapters detail a range of in vitro, in vivo and ex vivo models for nanobioanalytics, including DNA and peptide-based, erythrocyte, microfluidic and more. In addition, sections also look at various different medical diagnostic applications, such as in cancer detection, infectious disease diagnosis and blood glucose sensing.
