Review of ¿Introduction to BioMEMS¿ by Albert Folch
Three e-book copies are available from the UW Libraries. This book shows many ways of making small devices, their advantages and disadvantages, and how they are used in a biological environment. The boxed-off asides give excellent insight into the field and the continually references in the text to pioneers and leaders of the field will reinforce the concepts for the students and allow for scientific papers to be found in the literature.
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.
Welcome instructors, and thanks for deciding to use my textbook! Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime. Microfluidics Introduction to microfluidics, properties of biological fluids in microchannels, mathematical modeling of fluid flow. Selected pages Title Page. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Section 4 slides or textbook Chapter 4. One clear difference between these three books is the excellent and current overview of the field of microfluidics that is provided by Folch.
The glossy paper that is used throughout the text is higher quality and provides higher print contrast for easier reading than the paper that is used in normal text books, where only the color plate sections uses glossy paper. I was in the market for a textbook to introduce the field of BioMEMS to graduate biomedical engineering students. 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.

Fawwaz Habbal, Harvard University. 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. While the plethora of color figures is a definite feature of this book, they also give the book somewhat of an odd odor, sort of like a paint store.
The color figures differentiate biokems 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.
It focuses on high-impact, creative work encompassing all the scales of life—from biomolecules to cells, tissues, and organisms. Many working scientists and engineers as well as students will find this book fascinating. WinterWF 2: Framework and contents of the book The book begins with an overview of microfabrication techniques for both hard and soft materials followed by an extensive review of microfluidics. I have found these types of questions are very interesting to grade and provide useful feedback to the instructor on how well the students are learning useful information.
