About this book

Microfluidics for Biological Applications provides researchers and scientists in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and life science industries with an introduction to the basics of microfluidics and discusses how to link these technologies to various biological applications at the industrial and academic level. Readers will gain insight into a wide variety of biological applications for microfluidics.

The book begins with a perspective on the history and development of microfluidic technologies, followed by an overview on how microfluidic systems have been used to study and manipulate specific classes of components, including a discussion of specific biological applications of microfluidics and concludes with a discussion of emerging trends in the field. Microfluidics for Biological Applications provides information about the latest techniques and trends including:

  • Fabrication methods for microfluidic devices, including those using biodegradable materials
  • Use of microfluidics for high throughput screening
  • Microfluidic methods for detection of pathogens in diagnostic and biodefense applications
  • Analysis and manipulation of DNA, proteins, and cells in a microfluidic device
  • Use of microfluidic platforms for tissue engineering and vascularization

Microfluidics for Biological Applications is an ideal reference for researchers and practicing engineers, as well as graduate students who are either entering the field for the first time, or those already conducting research and who want to expand their knowledge in the area of microfluidics.

Reviews

Aus den Rezensionen: “Das Buch besteht aus einer SammIung von Übersichtsartikeln zu relevanten Themen in der Mikrofluidik. ... Die einzelnen Übersichtsartikel beschreiben umfassend und detailliert den Stand der Technik. ... Alle Kapitel geben eine ausführliche Sekundärliteraturliste und verweisen auf ... mikrofluidische Chips und Geräte, um diese auszulesen. ... Insbesondere die ... Einleitungen, die Erläuterungen der ... Materialien und die Darstellung zukünftiger Trends werden in jedem Kapitel erneut diskutiert. ... Zusammenfassend lässt sich sagen, dass einem in den Lebenswissenschaften geschulten Leser das Thema eines Übersichtsartikels kurz und umfassend näher gebracht wird ...“ (Yvonne Joseph, in: Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, 2010, Issue 1, S. 20)
