  • Digital-microfluidic lab-on-a chip (LoC) technology offers a platform for developing diagnostic applications with the advantages of portability, sample and reagent volume reduction, faster analysis, increased automation, low power consumption, compatibility with mass manufacturing, and high throughput. In addition to diagnostics, digital microfluidics is finding use in airborne chemical detection, DNA sequencing by synthesis, and tissue engineering. In this article, we review efforts to develop… CONTINUE READING
