New automated biological-sample analysis systems to accelerate disease detection

Microfluidics refers to the manipulation of fluids in microscale devices. Commonly called “labs on a chip,” microfluidic systems are used to study and analyze very small-scale chemical or biological samples, replacing the extremely expensive and cumbersome instruments used for traditional biological analyses. Professor Thomas Gervais of Polytechnique Montréal and his students Pierre-Alexandre Goyette and Étienne … More New automated biological-sample analysis systems to accelerate disease detection
