Labs on Chip: Principles, Design, and Technology.pdf
This book provides a complete reference for the complex field of labs-on-chip for applications in biotechnology. In an accurate and technical form, the text presents elements of labs-on-chip biotechnology useful both to the professional who wants to approach a new field and to the specialist of one particular aspect who wants to gain a broader view. The book is based on realistic applications matured in a long work with medical researchers, and integrates coverage of technology issues with strong theoretical explanations of design techniques.
"... a bright example of a truly interdisciplinary text. I was much impressed by its completeness. ... useful for a broad class of readers." -Fabrizio Frezza, Sapienza - Universita di Roma, Italy
