  • Biosensors for the Environmental Monitoring of Aquatic Systems

    There is an increasing need for effective methods of estimating the risks caused by the large number of pollutants released into the environment by human activities. This volume provides an overview of biosensors as a key tool for the environmental monitoring of aquatic systems. Biosensor technology is based on a specific biological recognition ...

  • Novel Approaches in Biosensors and Rapid Diagnostic Assays

    In the medical, food, and environmental fields there is a continuous demand for inexpensive and sensitive analytical devices that are reliable, rapid, capable of high-throughput screening, and have low cost per test unit. Small and portable biosensor devices are designed to fulfill most of these requirements, and can be used in laboratory and ...

  • Defense against Bioterror: Detection Technologies, Implementation Strategies and Commercial Opportunities

    A critical assessment of state-of-the-art of emerging ('breakthrough') biosensor technologies that will allow for the rapid identification of biological threat agents in the environment and human population.Identification of directions for future research, and to promote close working relationships between scientists from different countries and ...

  • Bioremediation

    In the field of biosensors the previous focus has been almost entirely on medical diagnostics. Here it is discussed in relation to bioremediation. The application of new biosensing techniques to environmental monitoring promises to be a more economical approach to monitoring both soil consortia and levels of pollutants. Significantly, ...

  • Chemistry of Marine Water and Sediments

    The book deals with the processes in marine environment with particular emphasis on the interface processes (sediments- water and atmosphere-water) regarding organic matter and energy fluxes, carbon dioxide intake and transformation. Particular analytical methodologies concerning biosensors for analysis in situ are ...

  • Detection of Pathogens in Water Using Micro and Nano-Technology

    Detection of Pathogens in Water Using Micro and Nano-Technology aims to promote the uptake of innovative micro and nano-technological approaches towards the development of an integrated, cost-effective nano-biological sensor useful for security and environmental assays. The book describes the concerted efforts of a large European research project ...

  • Nanotechnology for Water and Wastewater Treatment

    The rapid development of nanoscience enables a technology revolution that will soon impact virtually every facet of the water sector. Yet, there is still too little understanding of what nanoscience and nanotechnology is, what can it do and whether to fear it or not, even among the educated public as well as scientists and engineers from other ...

  • Coupling of Biological and Electronic Systems

    The coupling of biological and electronic systems has in the past few years emerged as a field of increasing importance. Achievements like the cardiac pacemaker have paved the way for more sophisticated approaches, such as the lab-on-a-chip and DNA computers. This book presents reviews on some of the most promising projects in this ...

  • Ozone and Plant Cell

    Ozone is a normal constituent of air but this gas becomes dangerous for living organism when its concentration in the troposphere is too high. Most previous studies of this substance examined it merely in its role as an earth screen for the biosphere or an air pollutant. This book will also view its derivatives (active oxygen species) at a ...

  • Environmental Biotechnology: Principles and Applications

    Biotechnology offers a 'natural' way of addressing environmental problems, ranging from identification of biohazards to bioremediation techniques for industrial, agricultural and municipal effluents and residues. Biotechnology is also a crucial element in the paradigm of 'sustainable development'. This collection of 66 papers, by authors from ...

  • Encyclopedia of Sensors, 10-Volume Set

    Encyclopedia of Sensors is the first encyclopedia ever published in the field of sensors. The multivolume encyclopedia will provide a complete coverage of most recent advances and emerging new sensor technologies in the fields of science, engineering and medicine. Although there are many books focused on sensors however no encyclopedic reference ...

  • Methods in Proteome and Protein Analysis

    Following the succesful publication of 'Proteome and Protein Analysis' in 2000, which was based on a former MPSA (Methods in Protein Structure Analysis) conference, Methods in Proteome and Protein Analysis presents the most interesting papers from the 14th MPSA meeting.Major topics include: protein and peptide sample preparation and separation; ...

  • Biomimetics: Biologically Inspired Technologies

    Nature is the world's foremost designer. With billions of years of experience and boasting the most extensive laboratory available, it conducts research in every branch of engineering and science.
