Microfluidics-based biochips combine electronics with biochemistry for newly emerging application areas such as point-of-care medical diagnostics, on-chip DNA analysis, automated drug discovery, and protein crystallization. This book envisions an automated design flow for microfluidic biochips. It offers newly designed automation solutions for problems unique to digital microfluidics. The authors provide a comprehensive methodology for the automated design, test, and use of robust and low-cost manufactured digital microfluidic systems. Using real-life biossays as examples, they offer a comprehensive set of practical methodologies and tools for chip design and manufacture.
