Microfluidic Chip: Lab on a chip solution

Microfluidic Lab on a Chip (LOC) is a Device which integrates one or several laboratory functions on a single chip of only milimeters to few centimeters in size and that are capable of handling extremely small fluid volumes down to less than pico liters.



The main ADVANTAGES are:

– Low fluid volume consumption

– Faster analysis and response times

– Better controlled reactions

– Optimized heat and mass transfer

– Compactness

– Low fabrication costs

There is an  increasing interest in MEDICINE , BIOLOGY and ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY to develop these devices due to the flexibility, cost and speed.
