Beschreibungen

This book describes the current state of research and development in biomimetic membranes for nanobiotechnology applications. It takes an international perspective on the issue of developing biotechnology applications from an understanding of the biomimetic membrane at the nanoscale. The success of these applications relies on a good understanding of the interaction and incorporation of macromolecules in membranes and the fundamental properties of the membrane itself.
Nanobiotechnology of Biomimetic Membranes describes the current state of research and development in biomimetic membranes for nanobiotechnology applications. The application areas in nanobiotechnology range from novel nanosensors, to novel methods for sorting and delivering bio-active moleculres, to novel drug-delivery systems. The success of these applications relies on a good understanding of the interaction and incorporation of macromoleculres in membranes and the funamental properties of the membrane itself.
The Significance of Biomimetic Membrane Nanobiotechnology to Biomedical Applications.- Langmuir-Blodgett Technique for Synthesis of Biomimetic Lipid Membranes.- Liposome Techniques for Synthesis of Biomimetic Lipid Membranes.- Characterization and Analysis of Biomimetic Membranes.- Biomimetic Membranes in Biosensor Applications.
About the Series:
Fundamental Biomedical Technologies features titles in multidisciplinary, technology-driven areas, providing the foundations for breakthrough advances in medicine and biology. The term technology refers, in a vigorously unrestrictive sense, to a broad array of engineering disciplines, the sciences of computation and informatics, mathematical models exploiting and advancing methods of mathematical physics, and the development of novel, experimental discovery devices. Titles in this series are designed and selected to provide high-level visionary input for specialists, while presenting overviews of emerging fields for those in related areas. Volumes in this series aim to provide technologists with the material to gain competent entry into biomedical research and biomedical researchers to understand and embrace novel technological foundations and tools.

Takes an international perspective on the issue of developing biotechnology applications from an understanding of the biomimetic membrane at the nanoscale
The application of nanotechnology principles and methodology to problems in biotechnology is providing an exciting discipline that will generate a revolution of novel applications in several areas. This book focuses on biomimetic membranes, one of the fundamental building blocks of nanobiotechnology. The biomimetic membrane, especially when self-assembled into a lipid bi-layer, provides the basic support structure for many applications in nanobiotechnology.
