... written by well-known researchers in the field. A strength of the book is that it features topical technologies, such as redox hydrogels, oligonucleotide sensitive electrodes, ion channels and protein engineering, but has not forgotten what has made biosensors the commercial success they are today ... easy to read, but provides sufficient depth to keep experienced researchers interested.
