Abstract

This review focuses on the development and use of microfluidic devices within a clinical setting. The underlying theoretical background of microfluidics is briefly elucidated. The materials and techniques used to fabricate the devices and their applicability to the clinical environment are described. The current research in this area is appraised and projections for future applications are discussed. (C) 2010 Society of Chemical Industry
