Microreaction chambers

Blas Salvador, and Antonio Luque     Universidad de Sevilla, Seville, Spain


In this chapter, we present microsystems aimed to the chemical or biological synthesis of new products. The reaction typically happens in chambers inside the microsystem, where controlled conditions are in place, but other components are necessary to bring the samples to the chamber, precondition them, and monitor the whole process. All these components will be described, with special emphasis in one application that is expected to be widely used in the near future: the creation of drugs for animal or human consumption, particularly those synthesized from radioactive elements, which are very commonly used in tumor detection and diagnosis ...
