Description

An increasing number of technologies are being used to detect minute quantities of biomolecules and cells. However, it can be difficult to determine which technologies show the most promise for high-sensitivity and low-limit detection in different applications. Microfluidics and Nanotechnology: Biosensing to the Single Molecule Limit details proven approaches for the detection of single cells and even single molecules?approaches employed by the world’s foremost microfluidics and nanotechnology laboratories. While similar books concentrate only on microfluidics or nanotechnology, this book focuses on the combination of soft materials (elastomers and other polymers) with hard materials (semiconductors, metals, and glass) to form integrated detection systems for biological and chemical targets. It explores physical and chemical?as well as contact and noncontact?detection methods, using case studies to demonstrate system capabilities. Presenting a snapshot of the current state of the art. Microfluidics and Nanotechnology: Biosensing to the Single Molecule Limit not only serves as a quick reference for the latest achievements in biochemical detection at the single-cell and single-molecule levels, but also provides researchers with inspiration for further innovation and expansion of the field.


Key Features:-

  • Explains the theory behind different detection techniques, from mechanical resonators for detecting
  • Examines microfluidic advances, including droplet microfluidics, digital microfluidics for manipulat
  • Highlights an array of technologies to allow for a comparison of the fundamental advantages and chal
