The critical goal of nanobiosensors is to detect any biochemical and/or biophysical signal related to a specific disease at the level of a single or few molecules. Nanobiosensors have been successful for in vitro as well as in vivo detection of several biomolecules. It is expected that this technology will revolutionize point-of-care and personalized diagnostics, and will be extremely applicable for early disease detection. This book includes a brief introduction to biosensors and then describes the emerging nanobiosensor technologies which are geared towards onsite clinical applications and those which can be used as a personalized diagnostic device.
Topics covered include;
Dr. Pranjal Chandra is currently working as Assistant Professor and Principal Investigator in Department of Biosciences and Bioengineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati (IITG) Guwahati, India. He earned his PhD from the Institute of Biophysio Sensor Technology, Pusan National University, South Korea and did postdoctoral research at Technion- Israel Institute of Technology, Israel. His research group is working towards the development of cheap diagnostic methods based on nanobiosensors, microfluidic systems, paper based sensors for biomedical diagnostics and environmental monitoring. He is recipient of several awards and fellowships including the Ramanujan Fellowship awarded by the Government of India. Dr. Chandra is an editorial board member of various journals including World Journal of Methodology, USA.
Nanobiosensors for Personalized and Onsite Biomedical Diagnosis is essential reading for researchers, advanced students and healthcare engineers working in the development and clinical application of sensor technologies.
