Expert insight: Sample prep

Sample preparation

Almost all biological samples that are used in biomedical assays need some form of preparation before they are ready to be processed. Developers in the field of microfluidics are working towards integration of these sample prep steps as part of the analysis platform.

Expert insight

Our expert Alvaro Conde says about this: “The integration of sample preparation steps into labs-on-chips has the advantage of assays being carried out with minimal user intervention. Separately and manually perfoming sample prep steps takes time and money and has a greater risk of errors, whereas integrated sample prep allows an automated and secure sample-to-answer process.”

There is an extensive variety of sample preparation techniques that can be integrated on-chip. Would you like to know more about this?
