Developing high-performance microfluidic paper-based analytical devices
Small-scale systems to manipulate fluids, also referred to as microfluidics, have proven effective at reducing analytical costs by increasing the portability of diagnostic devices. Microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (μPADs) have also proven to be cost-effective while remaining disposable, possessing the capacity to store reagents, and producing quantitative diagnostic results. These benefits have lead the field to increase exponentially since the seminal publication, with 63 review articles currently published on the subject. Most articles in the field focus on three topics: 1) new ...
