  • During the last three decades, important advances have been made in the available treatments for the loss of skeletal tissue as a result of trauma or disease. The application of large skeletal allografts and total joint replacement have become successful and reproducible treatment options. Unfortunately there still is a significant incidence of failure because of mechanical or biological complications.

  • Current clinical technologies, especially donor transplants and artificial organs, have been excellent life-saving and life-extending therapies to treat patients who need to reconstitute diseased or devastated organs or tissues as a result of an accident, trauma, and cancer, or to correct congenital structural anomalies. For long, most scientists and clinicians believed that damaged or lost tissues could only be replaced by organ transplantation or with totally artificial parts.

  • One of the main advantages of this technique is that it can produce the scaffold with main structural feature suitable for growth of the cell and subsequent tissue organization (Li & Tuan, 2009; Liang et al., 2007; Leong et al., 2008). It can produce the ultra fine fibers with special orientation, high aspect ratio, high surface area, and having control over pore geometry.

  • Particulate leaching is one of the popular techniques that are widely used to fabricate scaffolds for tissue engineering applications (Ma & Langer, 1999; Lu et al, 2000). Salt, wax or sugars known as porogens are used to create the pores or channels. Here salt is grounded into small particles and those particles that have desired size are poured into a mold and filled with the porogen. A polymer solution is then cast into the salt-filled mold. After the evaporation of the solvent, the salt crystals are leached away using water to form the pores of the scaffold. The process...

  • The clinical microbiology laboratory is often a sentinel for the detection of drug resistant strains of microorganisms. Standardized protocols require continual scrutiny to detect emerging phenotypic resistance patterns. The timely notification of clinicians with susceptibility results can initiate the alteration of antimicrobial chemotherapy and improve patient care. It is vital that microbiology laboratories stay current with standard and emerging methods and have a solid understanding of their function in the war on infectious diseases. ...

  • One of the most awaited technologies for the preservation of tissue-engineered product is long-term unfrozen storage (more specifically, dry storage) at ambient temperature. This approach allows storage without dependence on expensive freezers or liquid nitrogen, which require daily maintenance. This “off-the-shelf” availability and low cost should facilitate the usage of tissue-engineered products. Unfortunately, this is not yet a reality.

  • It is my privilege to contribute the foreword for this unique volume entitled: “Plant Tissue Culture Engineering,” edited by S. Dutta Gupta and Y. Ibaraki. While there have been a number of volumes published regarding the basic methods and applications of plant tissue and cell culture technologies, and even considerable attention provided to bioreactor design, relatively little attention has been afforded to the engineering principles that have emerged as critical contributions to the commercial applications of plant biotechnologies.

  • Since its first implementation by Lauterbur [1], Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has become an important noninvasive imaging modality. MRI has found a number of applications in the fields of biology, engineering, and material science. Because it provides unique contrast between soft tissues (which is generally superior to that of CT) and high spatial resolution, MRI has revolutionized diagnostic imaging in medical science. An important advantage of diagnostic MRI as compared to CT is that the former does not use ionizing radiation....

  • Undergraduate biomedical engineering programs and curricula are being rapidly developed across the United States. We perceive a correspondingly increasing need for biomedical engineering textbooks specifically designed for undergraduate readers. Many educators have come to appreciate that physiology and biology are not narrow, specialized applications to be ‘‘tacked onto’’ an engineering curriculum, but are instead rich subjects that can naturally elicit and benefit from the kinds of creative problem-solving and quantitative analyses that are hallmarks of engineering.

  • Polymer micromolding is a common way to ma microchannels, because of the ease of processing, low co and bio-compatibility. Molds with micron-scale featur may be made from photosensitive polymers (e.g., SU-8) by DRIE silicon micromachining. Poly(dimethylsiloxan (PDMS) is often chosen as the microstructural materi [15]. PDMS is spin cast onto the mold, cured and peel off. A short exposure in an oxygen plasma activates t PDMS surface and results in instant bonding to oth PDMS or glass surfaces.
