Biomedical Microdevices is an interdisciplinary periodical devoted to all
aspects of research in the diagnostic and therapeutic applications of
Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS), microfabrication, and
nanotechnology.

General subjects of interest include the design, characterization, testing,
modeling and clinical validation of microfabricated systems, and their
integration on-chip and in larger functional units. The specific interests
of the Journal include systems for neural stimulation and recording,
bioseparation technologies such as nanofilters and electrophoretic
equipment, miniaturized analytic and DNA identification systems, biosensors,
and microtechnologies for cell and tissue research, tissue engineering, cell
transplantation and the controlled release of drugs and therapeutic
proteins.

Contributions reporting on fundamental and applied investigations of the
material science, biochemistry, and physics of biomedical microdevices are
encouraged. A non-exhaustive list of fields of interest includes:
biochemical modification, with reference to non-specific protein adsorption,
and the active immobilization and patterning of proteins on microfabricated
surfaces; the dynamics of fluids in micro-and-nano-fabricated channels; the
electromechanical and structural response of microfabricated systems; the
interactions of microdevices with cells and tissues, including
biocompatibility and biodegradation studies; the variation of the
characteristics of the systems as function of the microfabrication
parameters.

Subscribers have access to full-text articles.
