Advanced Biosensors for Virus Detection: Smart Diagnostics to Combat Against the SARS-CoV2 Pandemic covers the development of biosensor-based approaches for the diagnosis and prognosis of viral infections, specifically coronaviruses. The book discusses wide-ranging topics of available biosensor-based technologies and their application for early viral detection. Sections cover the emergence of SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV2, the global health response, the impact on affected populations, state-of-the art biomarkers, and risk factors. Specific focus is given to COVID-19, with coverage of genomic profiling, strain variation and the pathogenesis of SARS-CoV2.

In addition, current therapeutics, nano-abled advancements and challenges in the detection of SARS-CoV2 and COVID-19 management are discussed, along with the role of nanomaterials in the development of biosensors and how biosensors can be scaled up for clinical applications and commercialization.
