Book Description

Nanoscale techniques and devices have had an explosive influence on research in life sciences and bioengineering. Reflecting this influence, Nanopatterning and Nanoscale Devices for Biological Applications provides valuable insight into the latest developments in nanoscale technologies for the study of biological systems. Written and edited by experts in the field, this first-of-its-kind collection of topics:

  • Covers device fabrication methods targeting the substrate on the nanoscale through surface modification
  • Explores the generation of nanostructured biointerfaces and bioelectronics elements
  • Examines microfluidically generated droplets as reactors enabling nanoscale sample preparation and analysis
  • Gives an overview of key biosensors and integrated devices with nanoscale functionalities
  • Discusses the biological applications of nanoscale devices, including a review of nanotechnology in tissue engineering

Readers gain a deep understanding of the cutting-edge applications of nanotechnologies in biological engineering, and learn how to apply the relevant scientific concepts to their own research. Nanopatterning and Nanoscale Devices for Biological Applications is the definitive reference for researchers in engineering, biology, and biomedicine, and for anyone exploring the newest trends in this innovative field.

"This book is a good reference for researchers interested in realizing bio-applications based on micro- and nanostructures, where their interface with liquids and biomolecules is the key point. The most important ‘players’ of micro- and nano-bioengineering are considered, from DNA to proteins and cells. The work is a good merger of basic concepts and real examples of applications."
