The miniaturization of bioanalytical assays and sample pretreatments by exploiting meso-fluidic lab-on-valve configurations: a review.


Termed as the third generation of flow injection analysis, the lab-on-valve (LOV) system is closely related to the principle of sequential injection analysis and constructed aiming at facilitating various miniature analytical operations and downscaling sample/reagent consumption. The highly integrated configuration makes LOV system compatible with virtually… (More)
