From the reviews:

“This book can be recommended to scientist and students who are looking for information on main issues and future trends related to whole-cell sensing systems including integrated chips, microbial cell arrays, and fiber-optic-based cell sensors. Teachers also could take advantage of the book for lessons on practical applications of these systems for biosensing. … The book is, thus, a significant contribution to the literature on the latest achievements and challenges related to the attractive world of whole-cell sensing systems.” (Elisa Michelini, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 400, 2011)
