The reference set BioMEMS and Biomedical Nanotechnology is devoted to all aspects of research in the diagnostic and therapeutic applications of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), microfabrication and nanotechnology. It includes contributed reports on fundamental and applied investigations of the materials science, biochemistry and physics of biomedical devices. The design, characterization, testing, modeling and clinical validation of microfabricated systems are discussed as well as their integration on-chip and in larger units. With various editors, the complete set comprises Vol. 1, Biological and Biomedical Nanotechnology; Vol. 2, Micro and Nano-Technologies for Genomics and Proteomics; Vol. 3, Therapeutic Micro/Nanotechnology; and Vol. 4, Biomolecular Sensing, Processing and Analysis. Color photographs are included in each volume. Mauro Ferrari, ed.; Springer, New York, 2007; $499 per set; $169 per volume.
