The goal of the 416-page volume Biosensing:
International Research and Development is to provide information on the status
and trends of biosensing research worldwide to government officials and to the research
community. Contributors analyze and compare research being done in the US, Japan,
Europe and other industrialized regions. Sections address such areas as mass spectrometry,
optical biosensing, cell- and tissue-based sensors, and microfabricated biosensing
devices. Emphasis is on technologies that may lead to portable devices for field
studies. An integrated approach to biosensing systems is considered, encompassing
detection, storage, analysis, validation, interpretation and presentation of results.
