About the book
Immunoassay has a prominent position in rapid and sensitive detection. As understanding of the application of immunoassay in food safety increases, and consumer awareness of hazardous factors in food grows, demand for high sensitive immunoassay techniques will rise remarkably.
Food Immunochemistry and Immunology reviews the latest developments in immunoassay of typical pollutes in foods. The first part (9 chapters) relate to the primary knowledge of various immunoassay techniques and the preparation of immuno-molecules including antigen and antibody. The second part, in four chapters, considers the common pollutes in food such as agrochemicals, veterinary drugs, mycotoxins and other emerging contaminants and outlines the latest scientific achievements (especially in China).
Food Immunochemistry and Immunology will provide professionals and researchers with a useful reference source.
