Unformatted text preview: Biomedical Applications of MEMS Dr. Bruce K. Gale Fundamentals of Micromachining Market New Issues in BioMEMS Primarily biocompatibility How does biology affect the microsystem? How does the microsystem affect the biology? Size Biology and MEMS are similar in size Some biology is too large Organs, tissues, etc. Some biology is too rare Volume of sample needed may be large (viruses) BioMEMS often uses traditional MEMS but in new applications Sensing Arrays Arrays Advantages Repetitive information Increased confidence Averaging Variety of information Multiple analytes Multiple characterisitics Amplification Spatial resolution Disadvantages Data processing Cross talk Fabrication and Packaging General complexity Microelectrode Arrays for Monitoring Cell Physiology Neural Recording Arrays Types Design Issues Future Work Michigan Arrays Packaging Flexible Polymer Electrodes Cultured Neural Networks ITO electrodes with neurons growing over them Easily monitor synapses between cells Artificial Silicon Retina Arrays 3500 silicon photodiodes Each connected to stimulating electrode Shown to generate neural response http://www.artificialretina.energy.gov/howartificialretinaworks.shtml DOE Artificial Retina Program DOE Artificial Retina Program...
