This article discusses simple optical designs and common imaging techniques used in microfluidic enabled platforms. It will also suggest key elements to consider when deciding which optical set-up to employ for a given microfluidic application.
By examining the larger user experience involved in the microfluidics process, we can identify issues, and design these experiences to reduce the potential for user error, improve outcomes and create a simpler, more accessible process.
To make the most accurate strips possible, it is important to be aware of issues that can arise during a test strip’s lifecycle.
A brief look at the science behind the test strip.
Research around the global is focusing on a faster, more precise approach in diagnostics.
