Abstract: In this review, we have focused over MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) technology in the area of biomedical, which have played in important role-as diagnostic equipment in the diagnoses of different human body parts. The miniaturization of classical “bulky” measurement techniques has led to the realization of complex analytic systems, including such sensors as a Biochem Lab-On-Chip. This rapid progress in miniature devices and instrumentation development will significantly impact the practice of medical care as well as future advances in the biomedical field. Recently, MEMS along with modern IC also effected significantly on electrochemical, optical and acoustic wave transducer technologies, which have emerged as some of the most promising biomedical sensing technologies. Here, important features of these technologies, along with new developments and some of the applications, are presented.


Keywords: MEMS, Lab-On-Chip, Biomedical sensor
