University of Tartu

Toonika Rinken is a senior researcher of environmental chemistry and is leading a biosensor development lab at the Institute of Chemistry at the University of Tartu, Estonia. She received her PhD degree in chemistry in 2000 from the same university for her studies on modeling and calibration of biosensors. She has also pursued and completed professional self-improvement in Uppsala (Sweden) and Gröningen (the Netherlands). Dr. Rinken’s research focuses on the design and development of biosensing systems for automatic monitoring, and the study of signal rising, modeling, and calibration of biosensor-based analytical systems.

As biosensors comprise a prospective alternative to traditional chemical analyses, enabling fast on- and in-line measurements with sufficient selectivity, the field is expanding rapidly and is offering new ideas and developments every day. This book aims to cover the present state of the art in the biosensor technology and introduce the general aspects of biosensor- based techniques and methods. The book consists of 13 chapters by 44 authors and is divided into 3 sections, focused on bio-recognition techniques, signal transduction methods and signal analysis.
