Fluorescent and Luminescent Probes for Biological Activity : A Practical Guide to Technology for Quantitative Analysis
This book provides both new and existing scientists with a head-start into the practice of optical probe technology, the problems, the pitfalls and limitations likely to be encountered, the application to practical biological questions and the likely areas for future development. The book focuses on the practical hardware requirements and underlying principles of operation, the strategies leading to development of optical probes and their application to living material.
