the analytical performance, characteristics, pros and cons of the POC devices developed to date
the importance and role of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) monitoring for diabetes management
the various POC devices and analyzers for the determination of HbA1c.
This is the first book to provide complete up-to-date information on POC glucose detection technologies and devices for diabetic monitoring and management. It will be an important reference for healthcare professionals, biomedical engineers, researchers, economists and policy makers. This book also serves as an asset and teaching aid for professionals and researchers in diabetic monitoring and management.
