Nowadays, rapid tests are widely applied for clinical, drug, food, forensic and environmental analysis and fields of application are rapidly increasing together with advances in the technology. The growing interest in rapid tests and their expanding application in diverse fields, together with requirements of improved sensitivity, reliability, multiple detection capacity and robustness, are prompting innovation in the design of novel platforms, and in the exploitation of innovative detection strategies. The book covers advances in materials, technology and test design.
