About this series

The book series on BIOANALYSIS: Advanced Materials, Methods, and Devices is intended to serve as an authoritative reference source for a broad, interdisciplinary audience involved in the research, teaching, learning, and practice of bioanalytical science and technology. Bioanalysis has experienced explosive growth due to the dramatic convergence of advanced technologies and molecular biology research, which has led to the development of entirely new analytical tools for chemistry, biochemistry, biology, pharmaceutical and clinical sciences, environmental, forensic and materials sciences. New approaches are developed to probe biomolecular and cellular processes as well as biological responses to implanted biomaterials and engineered tissues. Novel optical techniques using a wide variety of reporter gene assays, ion channel probes, and fluorescent probes have provided powerful bioanalytical tools for cell-based assays. The combination of molecular nanotechnology and various sensing modalities (optical, electrochemical, mass-based, etc.) opens the possibility of detecting and manipulating atoms and molecules using nano-devices, which have the potential for a wide variety of bioanalyses at the cellular level.

This book series will present the most recent scientific and technological advances in materials, methods and instrumentation of interest to researchers, students, and manufacturers. The goal is to provide a comprehensive forum to integrate the contributions of chemists, physicists, biologists, engineers, materials scientists, and others involved in the analytical science and technology revolution that is reshaping molecular biology and medicine.
