Biomedical Microdevices covers research in the diagnostic and therapeutic applications of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems, microfabrication, and nanotechnology.
Topics include design, characterization, testing, modeling and clinical validation of microfabricated systems, and their integration on-chip and in larger functional units. The interests of the journal include systems for neural stimulation and recording; bioseparation technologies such as nanofilters and electrophoretic equipment; miniaturized analytic and DNA identification systems; biosensors; microtechnologies for cell and tissue research; tissue engineering; cell transplantation and the controlled release of drugs and therapeutic proteins. Coverage extends to biochemical modification and non-specific protein adsorption; fluid dynamics in micro- and nano-fabricated channels; electromechanical and structural response of microfabricated systems; interactions of microdevices with cells and tissues, including biocompatibility and biodegradation; and more.
