About this book


In Molecular Diagnosis of Infectious Diseases leading international authorities provide a comprehensive and up-to-date set of basic and advanced methods that illuminate the principles of molecular diagnostics and allow researchers to establish assay systems tailored to their specific needs. This unique collection of protocols covers the latest strategies for identifying novel diagnostic markers, epitope mapping, and the production and purification of recombinant antigens, as well as their use as diagnostic reagents in immunological assays. It also includes promising techniques based on recent developments in antibody engineering and on the use of biosensors.

Molecular Diagnosis of Infectious Diseases offers clinical microbiologists, clinical chemists, and pathologists unique tools with which to develop improved assays for diagnosing infectious diseases. The book is certain to play a leading role in helping researchers to understand and realize in their daily work the powerful potential of molecular diagnostic techniques in clinical microbiology today.
