Résumé: Lab-on-Chips take multi-path approach: microelectronic design and implementation of bio-interfaces offering a vital contemporary view of a wide range of integrated circuits and system for electrical, magnetic, optical and mechanical sensing and actuating blocks and much more; classical knowledge of biology, biochemistry as well as microfluidics. Lab-on-Chip incorporates a verity of means including electronic, photonic and microfluidic devices; biological materials (living cells, tissue, enzymes, nucleic acid and etc.) and chemical analysis to produce the detectable signals for identification or control of biological phenomena. The coverage of this tutorial is both practical and experimental examples of actual biological cases using standard CMOS technologies.

Note biographique: Ebrahim Ghafar-Zadeh received BSc. and MSc. degrees in electrical engineering from KNT (1995) and Tehran Universities (1997) Tehran, Iran respectively. In 1997, he joined the department of electrical engineering in SCU University, Iran as a lecturer. During 2004-2008, he pursued his PhD studies in Ecole polytechnique de Montreal (Montreal, Canada). From 2008, Dr. Ghafar-Zadeh has received several postdoctoral fellowship awards allowing him to continue his research in CMOS Biochip design in the departments of electrical engineering at McGill University and in the department of Bioengineering at University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Ghafar-Zadeh is the writer of "CMOS Capacitive sensors for Lab-on-Chip" book published in Springer and until now he has published more than 30 papers in journals and conferences.
