Abstract

Monitoring studies for toxic substances in environmental and biological samples are essential for evaluating risk to human and environmental health. Immunoassays are one method that can satisfy analytical demands for high sample loads requiring high sensitivity because they are rapid, can be adapted to high throughput or biosensor formats and can be adapted for small sample sizes. A description of progress in the field of immunoassays and the application to biosensors in general is presented with a focus on research from this laboratory.
