The application of microfluidics to biotechnology is an exciting new area that has already begun to revolutionize how researchers study and manipulate macromolecules like DNA, proteins and cells in vitro and within living organisms. Now in a newly revised and expanded second edition, the Artech House bestseller, "Microfluidics for Biotechnology" brings professionals and students to the cutting edge of this burgeoning field. Featuring numerous updates and including three entirely new chapters, this book provides a detailed look at the mechanical behavior of the different types of micro/nano particles and macromolecules that are used in biotechnology. Engineers and laboratory researchers involved with the conception and design of bio-tech microdevices, as well as graduate and post-graduate students in related courses.
