Summary Dielectrophoresis: Theory, Methodology and Biological Applications describes the significant advances in the theory, technology and biomedical applications of dielectrophoresis since Herbert Pohl's seminal monograph of 1978. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, it covers aspects of the theory and practice of dielectrophoresis concerned with characterizing and manipulating cells and other bioparticles such as bacteria, viruses, proteins and nucleic acids. An introductory chapter places dielectrophoresis in context as a particle manipulator, and chapters are included to describe the dialectric properties of bioparticles and microfluidic concepts of relevance. -- from back cover
