While the book is designed for a one semester course, the book can be used for a one quarter course by first covering the introductory materials and then selecting some of the later detailed chapters for a more focused course.

His research focuses on the interface between cell biology and microfluidics. In these introductory chapters the author details the benefits of microfabrication smaller, faster, and cheaper. It focuses on high-impact, creative work encompassing all the scales of life—from biomolecules to cells, tissues, and organisms.

Review of “Introduction to BioMEMS” by Albert Folch

First editionout of print. Add both to Cart Add both to List. Suitability as a course textbook The extensive use of high-quality color figures and the minimal use of equations will be helpful to interdisciplinary bioengineering students who will most likely use this as a textbook in an introductory course.


I albret recommend this book for an advanced undergraduate or entry level interdisciplinary graduate course in BioMEMS. It provides a visual feast of images that lead to a comprehensive understanding of many complex concepts. Applications presented range from biomolecules to cells, tissues, and organisms, and are presented in clear, logical steps. This book includes all the things itnroduction instructor would look for in an instructional text.

Summary The entire scope of the BioMEMS field—at your fingertips Helping 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.


Introduction to BioMEMS

I was in the market for a textbook to introduce the field of BioMEMS to graduate biomedical engineering students. The provision of an extensive glossary of terms that are highlighted when used in the text will help new students overcome the challenges of specialized jargon that inttoduction typical of engineering fields.
