About this book


Microchip-Based Assay Systems explores recent progress in the microelectronics arena, the resultant miniaturization of component device features to nanometer size particles, and the ensuing growth in the development and use of microchip-based techniques in leading laboratories around the world. While the area of microelectronics faces daunting challenges, the field also promises fascinating new advances that may translate into products such as sensors and devices that use nanometer-sized building blocks for real-world applications. The contributors to this volume are part of growing interdisciplinary efforts among pioneers in microelectronics, nanoscience, and health that will continue to create exciting new microchip-based applications across a variety of sectors. In the 16 chapters of this volume, leading scientists present technically precise microchip-based assays for a variety of applications. The protocols detailed in this volume will help foster interest in microchip-based assays by providing readers with all the tools necessary to create their own microchip-based assays targeted to new applications. Certainly, Microchip-Based Assay Systems will help to expand the scope and accelerate the transition of microchip-based assays from academic and industrial research and development centers to real-world use.
