Micro- and nanoelectromechanical biosensors, 1st Edition by Leichlé, Thierry; Nicu, Liviu

By Leichlé, Thierry; Nicu, Liviu

Most books devoted to the problems of bio-sensing are equipped by means of the well known scheme of a biosensor. during this e-book, the authors have intentionally made up our minds to damage clear of the traditional manner of treating biosensing learn via uniquely addressing biomolecule immobilization tools on an exceptional floor, fluidics concerns and biosensing-related transduction suggestions, instead of focusing easily at the biosensor. the purpose is to supply a latest picture of the biosensing panorama with no neglecting the seminal references or items the place wanted, following the downscaling (from the micro- to the nanoscale) of biosensors and their respective most sensible recognized purposes. To finish, a short assessment of the main popularized nanodevices utilized to biology is given, sooner than evaluating biosensor standards by way of unique applications.

Body Area Networks: Safety, Security, and Sustainability by Professor Sandeep K. S. Gupta, Dr Tridib Mukherjee, Dr

By Professor Sandeep K. S. Gupta, Dr Tridib Mukherjee, Dr Krishna Kumar Venkatasubramanian

Physique region networks (BANs) are networks of instant sensors and scientific units embedded in garments, worn on or implanted within the physique, and feature the capability to revolutionize healthcare by way of permitting pervasive healthcare. although, as a result of their serious purposes affecting human healthiness, demanding situations come up while designing them to make sure they're secure for the consumer, sustainable with no requiring common battery replacements and safe from interference and malicious assaults. This booklet lays the principles of the way BANs should be redesigned from a cyber-physical structures viewpoint (CPS) to beat those matters. Introducing state-of-the-art theoretical and useful options and considering the original environment-coupled features of BANs, the publication examines how we will re-imagine the layout of secure, safe and sustainable BANs. It beneficial properties real-world case stories, feedback for additional research and venture rules, making it beneficial for a person occupied with pervasive and cellular healthcare, telemedicine, scientific apps and different cyber-physical structures.
