For upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in an introductory course in MEMS, bio-MEMS, or microfluidics.
This introduction to the emerging field of microfluidics explains how to take advantage of the performance benefits of microfluidics and serves as a reference for technology and applications in this area. It offers practical guidance on how to model, design, and fabricate microfluidic devices, and discusses a range of microfluidic applications, including fluid control devices, gas and fluid measurement devices, medical testing equipment, and implantable drug pumps. Calculations, data tables, and rules of thumb are provided to help practitioners make design decisions and determine device characteristics.
