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

#136 - Biomems and Microfluidics: Cell and Biomolecule Analysis (T3011)
Electrophoresis continues to be an integral tool for the analysis of biomolecules in both basic biology and medicine, and is now being adapted to the microfluidic device format. The ability to study processes at the single-cell level promises to provide a host of information with benefits in the area of therapeutics and drug discovery. In this session, we invite papers describing microfluidic technology to probe chemical and biochemical responses at the cellular and sub-cellular levels. In addition, we welcome contributions focused on any related aspects including simulation and modeling studies, materials modification to improve system performance, and novel sample preparation protocols.
