As technological developments widen the scope of functions for biomicroelectromechanical platforms (BioMEMS or biomicrosystems), the sphere keeps to impact many points of lifestyles technology operations and functionalities. simply because BioMEMS study and improvement require the enter of specialists who use varied technical languages and are available from various disciplines and backgrounds, scientists and scholars can stay away from capability problems in verbal exchange and figuring out provided that they own a ability set and knowing that permits them to paintings on the interface of engineering and biosciences.
Keeping this duality in brain all through, BioMEMS: technology and Engineering Perspectives helps and expedites the multidisciplinary studying curious about the advance of biomicrosystems. Divided into 9 chapters, it starts off with a balanced advent of organic, engineering, program, and commercialization facets of the sector. With a spotlight on molecules of organic curiosity, the ebook explores the development blocks of cells and viruses, in addition to molecules that shape the self-assembled monolayers (SAMs), linkers, and hydrogels used for making assorted surfaces biocompatible via functionalization.
The ebook additionally discusses:
- Different fabrics and structures used to boost biomicrosystems
- Various organic entities and pathogens (in ascending order of complexity)
- The multidisciplinary elements of engineering bioactive surfaces
- Engineering views, together with tools of producing bioactive surfaces and devices
- Microfluidics modeling and experimentation
- Device point implementation of BioMEMS strategies for various functions.
Because BioMEMS is an application-driven box, the ebook additionally highlights the techniques of lab-on-a-chip (LOC) and micro overall research method (μTAS), besides their pertinence to the rising point-of-care (POC) and point-of-need (PON) functions.
