Latest Lab-on-a-chip Stories
A major milestone in microfluidics could soon lead to stand-alone, self-powered chips that can diagnose diseases within minutes.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a faster, easier way to create microelectrodes, for use in microfluidic devices, by using liquid metal. Microfluidic devices manipulate small amounts of fluid and have a wide variety of applications, from testing minute blood samples to performing advanced chemical research. "By making it easier to incorporate electrodes into microfluidic devices, we hope to facilitate research and development into new technologies that utilize...
CHICAGO, Feb. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Microarrays, in this case, a set of miniaturized chemical reaction areas on a substrate, can be used to test DNA fragments, proteins, and/or antibodies.
Researchers have invented a technique that uses inexpensive paper to make "microfluidic" devices for rapid medical diagnostics and chemical analysis.
Microfluidics Lab at Harvard provides new core facility for undergraduate teaching.
While most blood tests require shipping a vial of blood to a laboratory for analysis and waiting several days for the results, a new device invented by a team of engineers and students at the University of Rhode Island uses just a pinprick of blood in a portable device that provides results in less than 30 minutes.
Biomedical engineers at UC Davis have developed a plug-in interface for the microfluidic chips that will form the basis of the next generation of compact medical devices.
LONDON, Nov. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan Award underlines Capilix's Excellence in Technology Innovation. The 2010 European Water Quality Sensors Technology Innovation Award therefore is presented to Capilix.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- ZyGEM Corp. Ltd., today announced several developments supporting the advancement of its integrated microfluidics platform designed to dramatically decrease the time, complexity and cost of conducting DNA testing.
â€œBetter and faster results!â€ is the clarion call for scientists and engineers to continually strive to improve their research tools.
Lab on a Chip is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published bi-weekly (24 issues per year) by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). It was established in 2001 and hosts RSC’s other publications: Highlights in Chemical Technology and Highlights in Chemical Biology. The editor-in-chief is Harp Minhas. Lab on a Chip publishes original primary research and review articles on any aspect of miniaturization at the micro and nano scale. It covers a variety of disciplines including chemistry,...
