Part of the “Topics in Fluorescence Spectroscopy”
series, the 462-page book Glucose Sensing focuses on noninvasive and continuous
approaches to physiological glucose monitoring. Written for researchers in biophysics,
biochemistry, bioengineering, biology and medicine, the illustrated resource discusses
advances in the field. It addresses topics such as glucose fluorosensor techniques,
a glucose-sensing contact lens, protein-based fluorescence biosensors for glucose
monitoring, and fluorophore genesis in macrocycle solutions and the detection of
glucose and related saccharides. Con A-based glucose sensing, and the use of substituent
effects and positional isomers as investigative tools to elucidate PET mechanisms
in arenedicarboximide saccharide probes also are addressed. An index is provided.
