A novel completely transparent bioMEMS (bio - Micro Electro Mechanical System) has been designed and produced using finite element analysis (FEA) and micro-fabrication techniques. This device has been thought to be used for testing the mechanical properties of single living cells. Our bioMEMS is versatile and can be coupled to other analysis techniques and being completely transparent can be used with either transmission or reflection microscopes. This device is based on a silicon dioxide – silicon nitride structure.

Abstract

A novel completely transparent bioMEMS (bio - Micro Electro Mechanical System) has been designed and produced using finite element analysis (FEA) and micro-fabrication techniques. This device has been thought to be used for testing the mechanical properties of single living cells. Our bioMEMS is versatile and can be coupled to other analysis techniques and being completely transparent can be used with either transmission or reflection microscopes. This device is based on a silicon dioxide – silicon nitride structure.
