Microfluidic fields of application

Fields of application that drive medical progress

Imagine: complete laboratories scaled down to just a few square centimetres. These “labs-on-a-chip” represent a significant proportion of microfluidics applications. Take a look at a few examples of these little technological marvels, and appreciate the potential of an exciting breakthrough.
