Topical 3: 2008 Annual Meeting of the American Electrophoresis Society (AES) (T3)

#580 - Biomems and Microfluidics: Sensing, Detection, and Integration (T3002)
Remarkable progress has been made to fabricate microscale and nanoscale devices for the detection and manipulation of biological cells and molecules. Furthermore, devices with different functions and of different materials have been integrated to form microscale and nanoscale systems for complex procedures. In this session, we invite contributions dealing with any aspects of micro/nanoscale sensors and actuators with biological applications. The interested topics include but are not limited to immunosensors, electrochemical sensors, and various spectroscopic and separation tools in a microchip format. We are particularly interested in papers dealing with micro/nano scale systems and issues related to integration. Both experimental and theoretical contributions are welcome.
