Expert insight: Sensor integration

Integrated chemiresistor for chemical sensing

Sensor integration

The shift of ‘intelligence’ from surrounding devices into the lab-on-chip itself is an ongoing process. In particular for point-of-care diagnostic devices, it is crucial to minimize the number of handling steps to make the use of the device as simple as possible.

Expert insight

Our expert Pieter-Jan Kwant says about this: “At Micronit we see an increase in applications in which semiconductor technology is combined with microfluidics to create highly innovative lab-on-chip concepts. We have profound development and manufacturing capabilities to create highly integrated microfluidic products. Those integrated consumables create smarter devices and move complexity from the instrument towards the chip.”
