Immunosensors can play an important role in the improvement of veterinary diagnostics in areas such as the diagnosis of diseases, drug detection and food quality control, by providing applications with rapid detection, high sensitivity and specificity. Associated with advances in biochemistry, biotechnology, electronics and microfabrication, new transduction devices that translate a biological interaction into an electrical signal have been developed. An overview of the current immunoassay techniques used in standard diagnosis is presented. This includes a brief description of the different immunosensor transducer principles and some examples of present and future developments.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
