EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In the modern world where technological advancement is pulsating in a matter of days, weeks or months, the ability to collect, process and analyse information can be a determining factor of life or death, peace or war, profit or loss, etc. The evolution of technology-based information is so rapid that even a highly competent individual has to struggle through thick and thin to keep up with the current trend. What happened a few minutes ago in the Amazon rain forest of South America can be heard of by a businessman residing somewhere in Asia, or any person from elsewhere with an internet connection. What was once a big and vast world system, has now become a small globalized realm due to the accessibility of information much more effectively and accurately in a shorter span of time, without the need to travel from one place to another. Thus, the gathering of information becomes more efficient and cheaper with the development of the global network system. However, with ever-increasing human population and new and better technological innovations (much like the pollution we so generated daily in huge amount), data, especially the public data, becomes so enormous that gathering, handling, processing and analysing that data becomes a demanding task. The analogy between data and pollution is accurate and ironic at the same time. Both are mainly of anthropogenic origins, increasing in folds of many, and managing them gets out of hand. If this vast data of information can be utilised for the betterment of Planet Earth, like for peace, removal and reduction of pollutions, advancement in medicines and healthcare systems and eradication of world poverty, it would be most appreciable.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Wearable biosensors represent a promising opportunity to continuously and non-invasively track human physiology through dynamic measurements of chemical markers in bio-fluids such as sweat, tears, saliva and interstitial fluid. Such biosensing platforms can thus offer real-time biochemical information toward a more comprehensive view of a wearer's health, performance or stress at the molecular level. The growing recent interest in wearable and mobile technologies has led to increased research efforts toward development of non-invasive biomarker monitoring platforms. Continuous biomonitoring addresses the limitations of finger-stick blood testing and provides the opportunity for optimal therapeutic interventions. My research for Ph.D is focused on developing wearable sensors and biosensors along with non-invasive biosensing opportunities and the potential impact of such wearable devices on our daily life. The present thesis covers the key target analytes and applications along with innovative biosensing technologies that have had a major impact on the reliability and applicability of such devices. These advances and opportunities are discussed along with the bottlenecks and gaps for realizing effective wearable biosensors in practical healthcare and performance monitoring. The specific sensing requirements and operational challenges associated with each bio-fluid are discussed separately along with potential target analytes and corresponding wearable platforms.

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Advanced materials and nanotechnology is a promising, emerging field involving the use of nanoparticles to facilitate the detection of various physical and chemical parameters, including temperature, humidity, pH, metal ion, anion, small organic or inorganic molecules, gases, and biomolecules responsible for environmental issues that can lead to diseases like cancer, diabetes, osteoarthritis, bacterial infections, and brain, retinal, and cardiovascular diseases. By monitoring environmental samples and detecting these environmental issues, advanced nanotechnology in this type of sensory technology is able to improve daily quality of life. Although these sensors are commercially available for the detection of monovalent cations, anions, gases, volatile organic molecules, heavy metal ions, and toxic metal ions, many existing models require significant power and lack advanced technology for more quality selectivity and sensitivity. There is room in these sensors to optimize their selectivity, reversibility, on/off ratio, response time, and their environmental stability in real-world operating conditions. This book explores the methods for the development and design of environmentally-friendly, simple, reliable, and cost effective electrochemical nanosensors using powerful nanostructured materials. More specifically, it highlights the use of various electrochemical-based biosensor sensors involved in the detection of monovalent cations, anions, gases, volatile organic molecules, heavy metal ions, and toxic metal ions, with the ultimate goal of seeing these technologies reach market.
