This learning module, provided by Support Center for Microsystems Education, introduces participants to diagnostic BioMEMS, or biological microelectromechanical systems. The module presents information about the areas in diagnostic medicine that are impacted by the introduction of BioMEMS. The following documents are included: three instructor guides, three participant guides, and a PowerPoint presentation. PDF and DOC versions are provided for all of the guides. The included guides are Primary Knowledge (PK), Research Activity, and Final Assessment. Instructor guides include additional content such as instructor notes as well as questions and answers.
"[The] Primary Knowledge (PK) unit provides introductory material that is needed to better understand the development of medical diagnostic devices in the area of bioMEMS." This unit includes the following objectives:
The included research activity on bioMEMS diagnostic devices has the following objectives:
The final assessment is used to determine participants' understanding "of the importance of diagnostics in BioMEMS applications." Ten questions are included.
The PowerPoint presentation includes a unit overview, objectives, introduction, review questions, and summary. The following topics are covered: lab-on-a-chip, BioMEMS diagnostics, diagnosing Dengue Fever, BioMEMS Diagnostics for Dengue Fever, Advantages of Diagnostics BioMEMS, Disadvantages of Diagnostic BioMEMS, clinical chemistry, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and more.
For orientation purposes the 'App_BioMEM_PK20_IG' PDF is included as a separate attachment and offers a sample of the type of material included in this module.
