This volume provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art review of the fundamentals and applications of microfluidics-based microsystems. As the world becomes increasingly concerned with terrorism, early on-the-spot detection of terrorists' weapons, particularly biological agents such as bacteria and viruses are extremely important. Microfluidics are powerful tools for security and anti-terrorism with wide-ranging applications, many of which are presented and discussed in this book.
