Below some books I found interesting to read and used to make this site.
|Handbook of Surface Plasmon Resonance
Richard B M Schasfoort (Editor), Anna J Tudos (Editor)
RSC 2008, ca. 401 p., hardcover
Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) plays a dominant role in real-time interaction sensing of biomolecular binding events. This book focuses on a total system description including optics, fluidics and sensor surfaces. It covers all commercial SPR systems in the market. It is the first of its kind and fills a gap in the technical literature as no other handbook on SPR is currently available. The final chapter discussed new trends and a vision is given for future developments and needs of the SPR market. This excellent handbook provides comprehensive information with easy to use, stand-alone chapters and will be of great use to anyone one working with or affiliated to the technology.
A new fully updated version of this book is expected in May 2017. This time with a contribution of the SPRpages!
|Surface Plasmon Resonance Sensors - A Materials Guide to Design and Optimization
Leiva Casemiro Oliveira, Antonio Marcus Nogueira Lima, Carsten Thirstrup, Helmut Franz Neff
Springer 2015, ca. 183 p.
ISBN 3319149261, 9783319149264
his book addresses the important physical phenomenon of Surface Plasmon Resonance or Surface Plasmon Polaritons in thin metal films, a phenomenon which is exploited in the design of a large variety of physico-chemical optical sensors. In this treatment, crucial materials aspects for design and optimization of SPR sensors are investigated and outlined in detail. The text covers the selection of nanometer thin metal films, ranging from free-electron to the platinum type conductors, along with their combination with a large variety of dielectric substrate materials, and associated individual layer and opto-geometric arrangements. Furthermore, as-yet hardly explored SPR features of selected metal–metal and metal–dielectric super lattices are included in this report.
|Real-Time Analysis of Biomolecular interactions - Applications of Biacore
Nagata, K. & Handa, H.
Springer-Verlag 2000, 256 p., hardcover
General introduction to surface plasmon resonance and the Biacore system and some basics of the experimental procedure. Greater part consist of the applications with SPR and Biacore. Applications are explaned by real experiments and data analysis and contain a reference list.
|Immobilized Biomolecules in Analysis - A Practical Approach
Cass, T. & Ligles, F.S.
Oxford University Press 1998, 216 p., paperback
This book describes in detail key methods for immobilization of biomolecules and cells on a variety of surfaces with different geometries and chemistries so that they retain their function. Also included are the analytical techniques needed to measure the functionality of immobilized biomolecules.
|Surface Plasmon Resonance Based Sensors
Series: Springer Series on Chemical Sensors and Biosensors, Vol. 4
Homola, Jirí (Ed.)
Springer 2006, XII, 251 p., hardcover
Also available online
The book is divided into three parts. Part I introduces readers to the fundamental principles of surface plasmon resonance (bio)sensors and covers the electromagnetic theory of surface plasmons, the theory of SPR sensors and molecular interactions at sensor surfaces. Part II presents a review of the state of the art in the development of SPR sensor instrumentation and functionalization methods. Part III discusses applications of SPR biosensors for study of molecules and their interactions and detection of chemical and biological analytes related to environmental monitoring, food safety and security and medical diagnostics.
|Surface Plasmon Resonance Methods and protocols.
Series: Methods is Molecular Biology, vol. 627
Mol, N.J.; Fischer, M.J.E. (Eds.)
Springer 2010, X, 255p, 77 illustrations., 6 in color.
Provides detailed protocols for a wide variety of SPR applications. Includes comprehensive background information on SPR techniques for better experimental design. Examines a variety of coupling techniques on different sensor surfaces. Highlights background issues involved in SPR assays to avoid common errors frequently found in SPR literature. Presents protocols in clear step by step procedures including the basics of kinetic analysis. Focuses on a wide range of applications for membrane-bound protein interactions, including G protein-coupled receptors. Chapters on the combination of SPR with mass spectrometry (SPR-MS) for quantification and identification of proteins. Written for users of commercially available SPR equipment. Covers the two most common sources of deviation from ideal kinetics: mass transport and surface heterogeneity.
|Binding and Kinetics for Molecular Biologists
J.A. Goodrich, J.F. Kugel
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press 2007, 177 p., hardcover spiral
This book offers a pratical guide to the principles of quatitative analysis in biological experiments. Topics covered range from the basics, such as measuring the concentrations of macromolecules, through considerations of binding constants and the kinetics of molecular interactions.
Complimenting the material presented in the book is a collection of Web-based simulations, available at the CFH site, that can be manipulated to visualize important concepts presented in the chapters. They afford a better understanding of binding and rate curves and fitting data.
