Labs on Chip: Principles, Design and Technology

Labs on Chip: Principles, Design and Technology provides a complete reference for the complex field of labs on chip in biotechnology. Merging three main areas— fluid dynamics, monolithic micro- and nano technology, and out-of-equilibrium biochemistry—this text integrates coverage of technology issues with strong theoretical explanations of design techniques. Analyzing each subject from basic principles to relevant applications, this book:

– Describes the biochemical elements required to work on labs on chip
– Discusses fabrication, microfluidic, and electronic and optical detection techniques
– Addresses planar technologies, polymer microfabrication, and process scalability to huge volumes
– Presents a global view of current lab-on-chip research and development
– Devotes an entire chapter to labs on chip for genetics

Summarizing in one source the different technical competencies required, Labs on Chip: Principles, Design and Technology offers valuable guidance for the lab-on-chip design decision-making process, while exploring
essential elements of labs on chip useful both to the professional who wants to approach a new field and to the specialist who wants to gain a broader perspective.
