The present and future role of microfluidics in biomedical research

  title={The present and future role of microfluidics in biomedical research},
  author={Eric K. Sackmann and Anna L. Fulton and David J. Beebe},
Microfluidics, a technology characterized by the engineered manipulation of fluids at the submillimetre scale, has shown considerable promise for improving diagnostics and biology research. Certain properties of microfluidic technologies, such as rapid sample processing and the precise control of fluids in an assay, have made them attractive candidates to replace traditional experimental approaches. Here we analyse the progress made by lab-on-a-chip microtechnologies in recent years, and… CONTINUE READING
