Immunoassays are biochemical tests that rely on antibodies (a special type of protein) to bind to specific molecular structures (antigens). They have become the most commercially successful technology in diagnostics, from home pregnancy testing kits to AIDS testing. Highly illustrated and clearly written, "The Immunoassay Handbook" provides an excellent guide to this fast-growing industry. Revised and updated, this third edition offers a balanced review of practical information and clinical applications in the field of immunoassay technology. Comprehensive and expertly written, "The Immunoassay Handbook" will be invaluable for a wide range of users from researchers developing immunoassay systems to developmental and marketing staff who need an excellent overview of how immunoassay principles, systems and applications work. With 68 chapters covering a wide range of topics, and new chapters looking at: surface plasmon resonance in kinetic, concentration and binding site analyses, and the foundations of immunochemistry, this handbook is a must read for all laboratory researchers and academics who use immunoassay as a tool including: pathologists, clinical and veterinary chemists, biochemists, students and researchers in immunology, biochemistry and medicine. This third edition contains updated and new information on advanced technology, including micro- and nanoscale immunoassays. It provides a unique mix of practical information coupled with a review of clinical applications, and practical examples. It includes contributions from world experts including Robert Ritchie and Professor Colin Self.
