About this book

This book focuses on state-of-the-art microfluidic research in medical and biological applications. The top-level researchers in this research field explain carefully and clearly what can be done by using microfluidic devices. Beginners in the field —undergraduates, engineers, biologists, medical researchers—will easily learn to understand microfluidic-based medical and biological applications. Because a wide range of topics is summarized here, it also helps experts to learn more about fields outside their own specialties. The book covers many interesting subjects, including cell separation, protein crystallization, single-cell analysis, cell diagnosis, point-of-care testing, immunoassay, embyos/worms on a chip and organ-on-a-chip. Readers will be convinced that microfluidic devices have great potential for medical and biological applications.

About the authors

Manabu Tokeshi is a professor in the Division of Applied Chemistry at Hokkaido University. He is also a visiting professor at the ImPACT Research Center for Advanced Nanobiodevices, the Innovative Research Center for Preventive Medical Engineering, and the Institute of Innovation for Future Society at Nagoya University. He received his Ph.D. degree from Kyushu University in 1997. Following his work as a research fellow of the Japan Society of Promotion of Science at The University of Tokyo, he worked at the Kanagawa Academy of Science and Technology as a research staff member (1998–1999), a group subleader (1999–2003), and a group leader (2003–2004). He also served at the Institute of Microchemistry Technology Co. Ltd. as president (2004–2005) and at Nagoya University as an associate professor (2005–2011). In 2011, Dr. Tokeshi was at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden as a visiting researcher, after which joined Hokkaido University as a professor. His honors include the Outstanding Researcher Award on Chemistry and Micro-Nano Systems from the Society for Chemistry and Micro-Nano Systems (2007), the Pioneers in Miniaturisation Prize from the Lab on a Chip (The Royal Society of Chemistry)/Corning Inc. (2007), and the Masao Horiba Award from HORIBA, Ltd. (2011). His research interests are in the development of micro- and nano-systems for chemical, biochemical, and clinical applications.
