From the reviews: "Excellent, invaluable and timely contributions, which serve very well to demonstrate the applicability of fluorescence to the field of glucose sensing and fluorescence-based monitoring technologies. ... this book addresses issues that researchers actually grapple with when they are working on a particular project or investigation in fluorescence-based monitoring technologies. ... The volume has the hallmarks of thoroughness and insights that can bring us researchers up to date with a map of the sensing and monitoring evaluation territory which new travelers also find invaluable." (Current Engineering Practice, 2007)
In the last decade concepts in fluorescence sensing have emerged as powerful techniques with an increasing number of applications in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, and medicine. The increasing importance of these techniques is typified in one emerging area by developing non-invasive and continuous approaches for physiological glucose monitoring.
