  • Offers the first how-to presentation of microdrop generation, giving readers the background needed to build or evaluate complete commercial systems
  • Includes the essential foundation in fluid mechanics relevant to the generation and non-image printing use of fluid microdrops
  • Contains extensive discussions on biological and industrial applications
  • Provides lists of manufacturers and suppliers of complete systems, components, and chemicals, including price lists
  • Summary

    The applications and use of inkjet-like microfluidic drop ejectors have grown rapidly in many fields, including biotechnology, drug discovery, combinatorial chemistry, and microfabrication. Yet to date, end users and even designers of microdrop systems for scientific applications have had no books to reference on the subject. Microdrop Generation meets the needs of all those who need to understand the physics and engineering behind microdrop technology. It also contains detailed, how-to information on the practical construction, operation, troubleshooting, and fluid formulation for microdrop ejection systems. Written by a highly experienced practitioner of the art, the book is organized as a self-contained tutorial of microdrop technology ideal for those new to the field.
