This text is devoted to the rapidly evolving microsystem technology that promises to unravel a wide range of academic and industrial analytical problems, such as trace proofing and single molecule detection, substance selection, miniturized sequencing of biopolymers, handling of single molecules or cells in micro devices and the optimization of molecular functions. All these applications will have a bearing on the future work in the diagnosis of disease, high-throughput screening approaches and combinatorial chemistry. These should be of importance in all life science fields where high efficiency, budgetary restrictions, high sensitivity, the presence of small amounts of highly toxic waste products and storage space constraints are relevant parameters. Taken as a whole this text seeks to reveal how microsystems technology is how changing the face of biology, forensics, gene therapy, molecular medicine, screening, and more.
