Microfluidics for Non-experts in Clinical Settings
Clinical translation of microfluidic sensor devices: focus on calibration and analytical robustness
Sally A. N. Gowers et al October 22, 2021
This paper discusses approaches to facilitate the use of microfluidics by non-experts in clinical settings outside of the laboratory. The researchers demonstrate a flexible microfluidic platform that can be coupled to microfluidic biosensors and used in conjunction with clinical microdialysis. The precision and control offered by this set-up enables the use of microfluidics by non-experts in clinical settings, increasing uptake and usage in real-world scenarios. We demonstrate how this type of system is helpful in guiding physicians in real-time clinical decision-making.
