    In the biological world, where the typical human cell is less than 10 μm in diameter, an average bacterium a few micrometers long, and the garden-variety virus about 100 nm in length, more and more researchers view microscopic tools known as biological microelectromechanical systems (bioMEMS) as the right choice for keeping patients alive and healthy. BioMEMS are an outgrowth of MEMS-the se... View full abstract»

    Biological or biomedical microelectromechanical systems (BioMEMS) are poised to have a significant impact on clinical and biomedical applications. These devices-also termed lab-on-chip or point-of-care (POC) sensors-rep- resent a significant opportunity in various patient-centric settings, including at home, at the doctor's office, in ambulances on the way to the hospital, in emergency rooms (ERs)...

    The emergence of biological microelectromechanical systems (BioMEMS) technology has been spurred by the development of precise microscale fabrication techniques across a wide range of biomaterials substrates. BioMEMS devices are now finding application in areas ranging from genomics and proteomics to clinical diagnostics and implantable drug delivery systems. The design principles of early lab-on-...

    Here, two academic bioengineers who have taken this commercialization step will share their experiences and thoughts. First, we discuss this topic with Steve Quake at Stanford University. Prof. Quake has pioneered the development of multilayer microvalves as a way to control complex fluid handling at a microscale. He has spun off the technology into Fluidigm, a company cofounded by him. Fluidigm h... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2816 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Diagnostic applications for global health have exploded in the past ten years. Numerous articles have been generated on global health priorities, constraints of resource-limited settings, and technological innovations for diagnostics development, including several comprehensive reviews [1]-[3]. In this article, we aim to provide 1) a focused summary of the most highly needed diagnostics, 2) a disc... View full abstract»

    A routine laboratory exercise for an undergraduate electrical engineering student is to build a simple electronic filter circuit and determine its frequency and transient response. During the exercise, the student exposes the circuit to a range of electrical signals and captures the voltage and current characteristics. The relationship between what the circuit is exposed to and how it responds all... View full abstract»

    Since the discovery of the X-ray radiation by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen in 1895, the field of medical imaging has developed into a huge scientific discipline. The analysis of patient data acquired by current image modalities, such as computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance tomography (MRT), positron emission tomography (PET), or ultrasound (US), offers previously unattained opportunities fo...

    In the two preceding notes about Laplace's law [1], [2], we first recalled what it is and how it is frequently mentioned or applied in physiology, finding that in this particular case, there is an apparent separation between physiology and physics supposedly backing up the subject. Moreover, mistakes are almost a rule while amazingly and fortunately, the overall practical conclusions after very he... View full abstract»
