The viral advanced diagnostics book will cover a spectrum of topics in the area of diagnostics and monitoring of viral ailments with an emphasis on the newer technologies in development such as optical fiber and electrochemical immunosensors, reverse genetics, luminescent molecular imprints of neutrophil biomarkers and many others. Authors are taken from the fields of epidemiology, biotechnology, virology, industry, technologists and the clinics. The viruses range from influenza to emerging ebola virus.  This text brings to the reader a composition of various aspects of the field while looking at the future after some introduction to the state-of-the-art.

The book is important has very little volumes exist emphasizing emerging technologies in the field of virology beyond the state-of-the-art and classical bioassay systems for monitoring viral infections.
