The pictorial overview will be a useful broad introduction to the field of BioMEMS to those who are interested in learning about the field, but do not have time to take the course. It serves as an outstanding text for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, as well as an excellent review for researchers who are new to the field. Folch’s book is a monumental achievement which brings an authoritative and comprehensive account to the rapidly growing, multidisciplinary field of bioMEMS.

The provision of an extensive glossary of terms that are highlighted when used in the text will help new students overcome the challenges of specialized jargon that is typical of engineering fields.

Highlights The book has an incredible collection of color figures, many introdjction which are the original figures from seminal papers in the field. It is focused in large part on the applications introductkon microfluidics to problems in biology and medicine and a captivating read for the bioengineering and biology students interested in this emerging field.


Important terms are highlighted in bold and defined in a glossary. I have found that students do not really appreciate these sorts of questions and they are somewhat boring to grade, as each students answers are all the nitroduction. Folch’s dedication and hard work very much.

The inclusion of only the most important formulae and thought experiments instead of involved mathematical exercises makes this textbook easily readable and relevant both to entry-level as well as advanced researchers.
