They discuss the state of the art of lab-on-a-chip
research and its biomedical applications at the cell level.
, or microfluidics, technology is one of the many avenues instrument manufacturers are exploring to provide turnkey solutions that require only microliters of reagents.
After two decades of development and despite increased competition from alternative technologies and from more companies developing lab-on-a-chip
technology finally appears to be making its mark within the MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) industry, according to In-Stat.
However, given the truly revolutionary nature of the concept of the lab-on-a-chip
, it would certainly be unfair to dismiss it on that basis.
