Advances in biosensors have improved biomarker discovery, affinity receptor design, detection of infectious microorganism and disease diagnostics due to close interaction of nanotechnology with other technologies which play a critical role for the future of biosensors and health care. Biosensing technology is a fascinating field which provides reliable, rapid and sensitive platforms for specific and ultra-sensitive biomarker-based diagnosis of diseases such as cancer, diabetes, infectious diseases and neurodegenerative disorders. This technology can also be used for the detection and removal of toxic materials from the human body such as cadmium, iron, aluminium and mercury. This book discusses advances in biosensors research. (Imprint: Nova)
