The whole scope of the BioMEMS field—at your fingertips
Helping to teach the recent new release of engineers and biologists, Introduction to BioMEMS explains how convinced difficulties in biology and medication take advantage of and sometimes require the miniaturization of units. The booklet covers the total breadth of this dynamic box, together with classical microfabrication, microfluidics, tissue engineering, cell-based and noncell-based units, and implantable platforms. It makes a speciality of high-impact, artistic paintings encompassing all of the scales of life—from biomolecules to cells, tissues, and organisms.
Brilliant colour presentation
Avoiding the overpowering information present in many engineering and physics texts, this groundbreaking book—in colour throughout—includes basically the main crucial formulation in addition to many noncalculation-based routines. vital phrases are highlighted in daring and outlined in a thesaurus. The textual content includes greater than four hundred colour figures, such a lot of that are from the unique researchers.
Coverage of either old views and the most recent developments
Developed from the author’s long-running direction, this classroom-tested textual content provides readers a shiny photo of ways the sector has grown by way of featuring ancient views and a timeline of seminal discoveries. It additionally describes a variety of cutting-edge biomedical purposes that reap the benefits of "going small," together with units that checklist task of mind cells, degree the diffusion of molecules in microfluidic channels, and make allowance for high-throughput experiences of gene expression.
