Microfluidics: Modeling, Mechanics and Mathematics, Second Edition provides a practical, lab-based approach to nano- and microfluidics, including a wealth of practical techniques, protocols and experiments ready to be put into practice in both research and industrial settings. This practical approach is ideally suited to researchers and R&D staff in industry. Additionally, the interdisciplinary approach to the science of nano- and microfluidics enables readers from a range of different academic disciplines to broaden their understanding. Alongside traditional fluid/transport topics, the book contains a wealth of coverage of materials and manufacturing techniques, chemical modification/surface functionalization, biochemical analysis, and the biosensors involved.
This fully updated new edition also includes new sections on viscous flows and centrifugal microfluidics, expanding the types of platforms covered to include centrifugal, capillary and electro kinetic platforms.
