Biosensors are analytical devices that combine a biologically sensitive element with a physical or chemical transducer to selectively and quantitatively detect the presence of specific compounds. Balancing basics, principles, and case studies, Biosensors: Microelectrochemical Devices covers the theory and applications of one class of biosensor-microelectrochemical devices. The book clearly explains microelectronic techniques used to produce these cheap, fast reacting, and disposable sensors with the aid of helpful diagrams and tables. Researchers and postgraduates active in the field of chemical sensors, analytical chemistry, or microelectronics will find this an invaluable reference.

"… well written … distinguished by a clear and systematic presentation of the principles, an attribute which is rare in monographs in an emergent technology, but which is really essential in an introductory interdisciplinary work of the principles of operation of biosensors and the methods of their manufacture."
-Measurement and Control
"… this book concentrates on a class of biosensors that the authors term 'micro-electrochemical' devices; namely those based on planar, solid-state technologies, such as silicon and thick film … well researched and technically detailed and provides a useful insight into its specific subject area … recommended to anyone working on, or interested in, electrochemical sensors, biosensors, thick film technology, or the broader solid-state sensor field."
