Book Description
Biosensors for Emerging and Re-Emerging Infectious Diseases provides a review of how cornerstone optical, electronic, nanomaterial and data processing technologies can address detection issues occurring in a pandemic event. This book gives insights into the fundamental physical, chemical and biological mechanisms needed for such a type of detection. The content covers potential biomarkers which can be used for the infectious disease diagnostic, helping readers find the appropriate approach for the diagnosis of infectious diseases. It presents a novel approach to transferring the sensing platform from lab to application in clinics and to point of care detection. The book then moves on to discuss the function and efficiency of the biosensing platform in early diagnosis of infectious diseases compared to the standard methods. The required time, the technician skills and the steps which must be performed are other key factors of the biosensing platform which are well explained. Covers applications of biosensors in diagnostics and detection of infection, and in the application of new materials in biosensor development Presents nano-biosensor based point-of-care technologies Introduces readers to the fundamentals of biosensors for infectious diseases
