Microfluidics for Medical Applications (Nanoscience & Nanotechnology Series)

Features: Microfluidics for Medical Applications

Lab-on-a-chip devices for point of care diagnostics have been present in clinics for several years now. Alongside their continual development, research is underway to bring the organs and tissue on-a-chip to the patient, amongst other medical applications of microfluidics.

This book provides the reader with a comprehensive review of the latest developments in the application of microfluidics to medicine and is divided into three main sections. The first part of the book discusses the state-of-the-art in organs and tissue on a chip; the second provides a thorough background to microfluidics for medicine, and the third (and largest) section provides numerous examples of point-of-care diagnostics.

Written with students and practitioners in mind, and with contributions from the leaders in the field across the globe, this book provides a complete digest of the state-of-the-art in microfluidics medical devices and will provide a handy resource for any laboratory or clinic involved in the development or application of such devices.

Laboratory Diagnosis in Neurology

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Brigitte Wildemann, Patrick Oschmann, Hansotto Reiber

Up-to-date, comprehensive, and beautifully illustrated, Laboratory Diagnosis in Neurology presents all the measuring parameters and methods relevant to the analysis of cerebrospinal fluid, serum, and tissues affected by neurologic disease and syndromes. Following an introduction to basic concepts, the book guides clinicians through the methods of CSF analysis, neurochemical examinations, clinical applications of neuroimmunology, microbiology and virology, neurogenetic tests, and evaluation of biopsies. Readers will learn about the equipment and various procedures, and how to effectively differentiate similar methods. In the final section of the book, the authors provide a systematic introduction to the pathophysiology and laboratory findings for specific clinical disorders, indications for particular test methods, and criteria for diagnostic interpretation.

Key features:

  • Clear presentation of pearls, pitfalls, and practical tips in blue boxes for at-a-glance review
  • Contributions by neurologists, psychiatrists with experience in laboratory analysis, clinical chemists, and neurochemists
  • More than 140 high-quality illustrations, mostly in full color, demonstrating common findings
  • Appendix with basic rules for interpreting disease-specific patterns, recommendations for quality control, and a list of the most important reference values

An indispensable tool for neurologists, laboratory physicians, and pathologists, this book is also a valuable reference for neurosurgeons, internists, and psychiatrists.

Molecular Diagnostics: Part 2: Clinical, Veterinary, Agrobotanical and Food Safety Applications

This two volume book set provides a comprehensive and practical overview of the state-of-the-art molecular biological diagnostic strategies that are currently used in a wide variety of disciplines. The volumes cover: 

  • Clinical microbiology and virology 
  • Clinical chemistry 
  • Pathology 
  • Veterinary medicine 
  • Plant Pathology 
  • Food safety

The two volumes are written by experts in their respective fields, who have, together with the editors, combined years of experience in the development, application and quality control of molecular diagnostic methods.

The first book is devoted to the theory and backgrounds of molecular techniques, amplification technology, next generation sequencing and bioinformatics for molecular laboratory diagnostics. As a fundament of reliable molecular diagnostic assays, the quality control required for validation, implementation and performance of molecular diagnostic assays is extensively discussed. The second book highlights the applications of these methods in the various diagnostic laboratories.

 These two full-colour well-illustrated volumes are particularly valuable for students, clinicians, scientists and other professionals who are interested in (designing) molecular diagnostic tests and for those who wish to expand their knowledge on the current molecular biological revolution. The extensive information in both books highlights the current trend of the integration of multiple (clinical) disciplines into one universal molecular laboratory.
