Environmental and Clinical Analysis

8–12 October 2004, Rome, Italy

The 6th Workshop on Biosensors and BioAnalytical m-Techniques in Environmental and Clinical Analysis, organized by the International Association of Environmental Analytical Chemistry (IAEAC) and ENEA (Ente per le Nuove tecnologie, l’Energia e l’Ambiente, Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and the Environment), will be held 8–12 October 2004 in Rome.

Recently the word “environment” has been acquiring a broader meaning. Prevention, monitoring, and depuration are now focused not only on the chemical detection of air, water, and soil pollutants but also on the health of the ecosystem, quality of life (including not only man but all living beings), clinical diagnostics and food safety, industrial activities and products, and effects from chemical, biological, and physical agents. Such a complex definition of “environment” meants that better measurement methods are needed, mainly in terms of number of analyses and costs, but also in terms of knowledge of the relationship between causes and effects.

The use of sensor-based analytical methods, originally focused on chemical and biochemical tests, is gaining increasing interest in the fields of environmental toxicity testing, for ecosystem monitoring as well as testing of crops and foods of animal origin, clinical diagnosis and therapy.

The increased interest in sensor-based techniques is proven by the significant number of both scientific papers and registered patents on this subject. Multidisciplinarity between chemistry, material sciences, biochemistry, molecular biology, physics, microelectronic technologies, and engineering has created important new ideas in several research fields, including biosensing. For these reasons, the workshop chairs and the scientific and local organizing committees are certain that the workshop will be a successful occasion for researchers to meet and generate new ideas and relevant results. Young researchers are encouraged to attend in order to contribute their enthusiasm and new ideas to the biosensing field.
