Overview

"Microfluidics deals with fluids flowing in miniaturized systems. It is a young discipline, which is expected to substantially expand over the next few years, stimulated by considerable development of applications in the pharmaceutical, biomedical and chemical engineering domains. The book is an introduction to this discipline." The book is written in a simple, direct, pedagogical way. It emphasizes concepts and understanding, rather than technical detail. It offers a cross-disciplinary view of the field embracing biological, chemical, physical and engineering perspectives. By using the book, the reader will have concepts, methods and data to grasp situations which typically arise in microfluidic systems.
