The entire scope of the BioMEMS field—at your fingertipsHelping to educate the new generation of engineers and biologists, Introduction to BioMEMS explains how certain problems in biology and medicine benefit from and often require the miniaturization of devices. The book covers the whole breadth of this dynamic field, including classical microfabrication, microfluidics, tissue engineering, cell-based and noncell-based devices, and implantable systems. It focuses on high-impact, creative work encompassing all the scales of life—from biomolecules to cells, tissues, and organisms.

Brilliant color presentationAvoiding the overwhelming details found in many engineering and physics texts, this groundbreaking book—in color throughout—includes only the most essential formulas as well as many noncalculation-based exercises. Important terms are highlighted in bold and defined in a glossary. The text contains more than 400 color figures, most of which are from the original researchers.

Coverage of both historical perspectives and the latest developmentsDeveloped from the author’s long-running course, this classroom-tested text gives readers a vivid picture of how the field has grown by presenting historical perspectives and a timeline of seminal discoveries. It also describes numerous state-of-the-art biomedical applications that benefit from "going small," including devices that record the electrical activity of brain cells, measure the diffusion of molecules in microfluidic channels, and allow for high-throughput studies of gene expression.

"I highly recommend this book for an advanced undergraduate or entry-level interdisciplinary graduate course in BioMEMS. It is well written and produced. The color figures differentiate it from other textbooks in this area and the author has done a thorough job documenting the history and current practices in this rapidly developing field. I plan to use it in my own class."—Joel A. Kubby, University of California, Santa Cruz, BioMedical Engineering OnLine, 2013"In this classroom-tested textbook, Folch offers a broad, yet detailed lecture on BioMEMS, sharing information in clear, straightforward language and over 400 excellent color figures. The inclusion of only the most important formulae and thought experiments instead of involved mathematical exercises makes this textbook easily readable and relevant both to entry-level as well as advanced researchers. This also makes Introduction to BioMEMS a perfect guide and an easy-to-use comprehensive textbook for researchers from different science and engineering fields."—Ali Khademhosseini, Harvard Medical School and MIT, Lab on a Chip, 2013"For anyone interested in learning more about the basics and applications of BioMEMS, I would give my most enthusiastic and unconditional recommendation to an excellent textbook in the field: Introduction to BioMEMS by Prof. Albert Folch. This textbook provides readers with an excellent balance of detailed descriptions and engaging visuals to describe key developments in BioMEMS technology. Additionally, the author highlights important formulas and explains underlying principles in a simple but thorough manner, which allows readers to gain a more comprehensive understanding of these biomedical devices and their applications. …I highly recommend Introduction to BioMEMS for students interested in learning more about innovative, state-of-the-art biomedical applications. I believe this textbook is well-suited for
