This book shows the various sandwich assays that are constructed from recognition molecules, such as antibodies, oligonucleotide sequences and aptamers, developed as a result of nano- and biotechnology advances. It consists of ten chapters presenting interesting examples of these assays, organized according to the type of analytic methods (colorimetric, fluorescence, electrochemical, etc.) and detected objects (protein, nucleic acid, small-molecule, ion, etc.). It also includes a chapter discussing the introduction of sandwich assays as biosensors for the detection of a range of targets. It is an interesting and useful resource for a wide readership in various fields of chemical science and nanotechnology.

"This book is fairly comprehensive in its coverage and provides useful insights into a multitude of unique research endeavors beyond biosensors and sandwich assays. These insights include an extensive discussion devoted to the relevance of analytes at varying molecular levels, fundamentals, and developments in complementary and utilitarian detection techniques, as well as materials science considerations." (Susana Campuzano, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 410, 2018)
