Microfluidic in Augmented Reality
A tiny chip with the same capabilities as a full-size laboratory?
That’s the science of Microfluidics, also known as “Lab-on-a-chip.”
Advances in the field are supporting huge strides in point-of-care diagnostics.
Employing droplet-based micro fluidics, extremely small, often-rare liquid samples are broken down into millions of droplets which can be tested individually.
