Microfluidics in Detection Science

Fatima H Labeed | Henry O Fatoyinbo


Additional Information

Book Details


The concept of a miniaturised laboratory on a disposable chip is now a reality, and in everyday use in industry, medicine and defence. New devices are launched all the time, prompting the need for a straightforward guide to the design and manufacture of lab-on-a-chip (LOC) devices.

This book presents a modular approach to the construction and integration of LOC components in detection science. The editors have brought together some of the leading experts from academia and industry to present an accessible guide to the technology available and its potential. Several chapters are devoted to applications, presenting both the sampling regime and detection methods needed. Further chapters describe the integration of LOC devices, not only with each other but also into existing technologies.

With insights into LOC applications, from biosensing to molecular and chemical analysis, and presenting scaled-down versions of existing technology alongside unique approaches that exploit the physics of the micro and nano-scale, this book will appeal to newcomers to the field and practitioners requiring a convenient reference.

"...what makes the book by Labeed and Fatoyinbo stand out from the others is the fact that it contains more current information and that it covers some topics (e.g., digital microfluidics, optofluidics, the use of paper as substrate for microfluidics) not yet covered in the other mentioned books."

"...the main strength of this book lies in the fact that it contains very current information and covers topics that have received increased interest in recent years."
