Eugenio Iannone, Dianax Founder and seminal book author of Labs on Chip: Principles, Design & Technology explains: “Miniaturization is one of the key technology that have changed the human life in the last decades, allowing to pack a huge number of functions in very small space with a cost that is a fraction of the cost of macroscopic equipment performing the same functions. A lab-on-a chip is a biochemical laboratory conceived for a specific process and completely comprised within a single chip. Main advantages of lab-on-chips are portability, reliability and low cost allowing moving clinical analysis nearer to the patient, at the point of need in order to take quicker informed decisions.”
