Microfluidics and Nanotechnology: Biosensing to the Single by Eric Lagally

By Eric Lagally

An expanding variety of applied sciences are getting used to observe minute amounts of biomolecules and cells. in spite of the fact that, it may be tough to figure out which applied sciences express the main promise for high-sensitivity and low-limit detection in several applications.


Microfluidics and Nanotechnology: Biosensing to the only Molecule Limit information confirmed methods for the detection of unmarried cells or even unmarried molecules—approaches hired through the world’s optimal microfluidics and nanotechnology laboratories. whereas related books focus purely on microfluidics or nanotechnology, this ebook specializes in the combo of soppy fabrics (elastomers and different polymers) with challenging fabrics (semiconductors, metals, and glass) to shape built-in detection structures for organic and chemical objectives. It explores actual and chemical—as good as touch and noncontact—detection equipment, utilizing case reviews to illustrate process functions. proposing a photo of the present state-of-the-art, the text:




  • Explains the speculation in the back of assorted detection thoughts, from mechanical resonators for detecting mobilephone density to fiber-optic tools for detecting DNA hybridization, and beyond

  • Examines microfluidic advances, together with droplet microfluidics, electronic microfluidics for manipulating droplets at the microscale, and more

  • Highlights an array of applied sciences to permit for a comparability of the elemental benefits and demanding situations of every, in addition to an appreciation of the facility of leveraging scalability and integration to accomplish sensitivity at low cost


Microfluidics and Nanotechnology: Biosensing to the only Molecule restrict not only serves as a short reference for the most recent achievements in biochemical detection on the single-cell and single-molecule degrees, but additionally presents researchers with suggestion for extra innovation and growth of the field.
