Most of the chapters address specific systems and reagents such as (strept)avidin-biotin, silane coupling, buckyballs & fullerenes, antibodies, liposome conjugates, and modified nucleotides--as well as a few chapters on observation techniques such as fluorescent probes and isotopic labeling. Also new since the last edition is a chapter addressing immobilization in chromatography.
