Description:In an age of computerized and automated asay systems, it is possible to gather data without understanding the chemistry or biochemistry involved. This may be suitable for lab techs who work for commercial companies, but it is not a good idea for serious scientists. This book explains how assays work, what can go wrong and what the limitations are. It also reviews the types of instrumentation commonly used in assays. It is an excellent resource for laboratory instructors and graduate students.
