Carrier systems and biosensors for biomedical applications

F. Davis and S.P.J. Higson,    Cranfield University, UK

Abstract:

This chapter initially addresses why carrier systems are required and describes both natural and synthetic versions of these systems. Nanotechnology is becoming increasingly utilised in carrier systems so current and future applications of these materials are discussed. The section on biosensors begins with a history and descriptions of basic sensor formats. Glucose biosensors are described in more detail due to their market dominance. There follows a discussion of the latest developments is implantable glucose sensors and their potential for continuous glucose monitoring. The wider use of biosensors is then detailed, ...
