Microfluidic Devices for Biomedical Applications (Woodhead Publishing Series in Biomaterials)


Microfluidic Devices for Biomedical Applications (Woodhead Publishing Series in Biomaterials) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Microfluidic devices are suitable for numerous applications, from drug delivery to tissue engineering. As microfluidic devices can be cheaply made and are small, applications in the medical fields are continually being researched and produced. This important book discusses the fundamentals of microfluidics and provides information on a wide range of medical applications. The first set of chapters discusses the fundamentals of microfluidic devices, while subsequent chapters look at drug delivery applications, applications in cell biology, tissue engineering and diagnostics. The conclusion reviews sensing applications.

About the Author

XiuJun (James) Lin is Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). His current research at UTEP is centered on the development of novel microfluidic lab-on-a-chip technology and nanotechnology for pathogen detection and disease diagnosis, and some other biomedical applications, such as single-cell analysis, and subcellular analysis.

Yu Zhou is a Research Scientist in the Department of Research and Development at ABS Global, Inc.
