A two-volume set, the Handbook of Biosensors and Biochips discusses many of the related applications used in medical diagnostics, in environmental control, and in the pharmaceutical and food industries. With contributions by experts in the field, the 1500-page resource provides an introduction to biosensor and biochip technologies, and it covers areas such as biological and molecular recognition systems, the biology-materials interface, array and transducer technologies, and miniaturized, microengineered and particle systems. Data analysis, conditioning and presentation are addressed as well as commercialization, business and regulatory issues, and future implications. Robert S.
