About this book

New edition of Eggins Biosensors published in 1997 and now out of print. Key features and subjects covered include the following: Sensors based on both electrochemical and photometric transducers; Mass-sensitive sensors; Thermal-sensitive sensors; Performance factors for sensors; Examples of applications; Detailed case studies of five selected sensors; 30 discussion questions with worked examples and 80 self-assessment questions; 140 explanatory diagrams; and an extensive bibliography.

...It would be a valuable addition to university libraries... (Chemistry in Britain, November 2002)) "...a useful contribution to introducing the subject to a wider range of analytical scientists..." (Chemistry & Industry, 3 March 2003) covers a wide range of sensoring systems accessible to a broad audience. (Metrohm Information, Vol.33, No.2 2004)
