Electrified Lab-On-A-Disc: A Novel Approach To Lab-On-A-Chip Systems

Since the early 1980s, researchers have been working to develop “Lab-on-a-Chip” systems. These miniaturized platforms integrate the tasks typically implemented by scientists on the bench, such as metering, aliquoting, mixing etc., into systems that are sometimes just the size of a credit card. This small part of the ongoing automation revolution offers the potential to
