INTRODUCTION TO BIOMEMS ALBERT FOLCH PDF

The book covers the whole breadth of this dynamic field, including classical microfabrication, microfluidics, tissue engineering, cell-based and noncell-based devices, and implantable systems. Important terms are highlighted in bold and defined in a glossary. The text contains more than color figures, most of which are from the original researchers. It also describes numerous state-of-the-art biomedical applications that benefit from "going small," including devices that record the electrical activity of brain cells, measure the diffusion of molecules in microfluidic channels, and allow for high-throughput studies of gene expression.

The entire scope of the BioMEMS field—at your fingertips Helping to educate the new generation of engineers and biologists, Introduction to BioMEMS explains how certain problems in biology and medicine benefit from and often require the miniaturization of devices.

The book covers the whole breadth of this dynamic field, including classical microfabrication, microfluidics, tissue engineering, cell-based and noncell-based devices, and implantable systems. It focuses on high-impact, creative work encompassing all the scales of life—from biomolecules to cells, tissues, and organisms.

Brilliant color presentation Avoiding the overwhelming details found in many engineering and physics texts, this groundbreaking book—in color throughout—includes only the most essential formulas as well as many noncalculation-based exercises. Important terms are highlighted in bold and defined in a glossary. The text contains more than color figures, most of which are from the original researchers.

It also describes numerous state-of-the-art biomedical applications that benefit from "going small," including devices that record the electrical activity of brain cells, measure the diffusion of molecules in microfluidic channels, and allow for high-throughput studies of gene expression.

Review of “Introduction to BioMEMS” by Albert Folch

It will review the contents of the book and discuss it suitability as textbook, highlights of the book, and comparison to other textbooks on BioMEMS. It provides coverage of both historical perspectives and the latest developments in this rapidly developing field. The extensive use of color figures, the non-extensive use of equations, and a thorough glossary of terms will make this textbook ideal for an interdisciplinary introductory bioengineering course. The extensive use of high-quality color figures and the minimal use of equations will be helpful to interdisciplinary bioengineering students who will most likely use this as a textbook in an introductory course. Folch points out that he has not written a comprehensive textbook that is full of references to the literature, but rather an introductory textbook that is designed to guide students through the myriad of BioMEMS devices, focusing attention on the highest impact and most creative work in the field.
