Researchers push toward true lab-on-a-chip
A group of Italian researchers is closer to moving medical research and diagnosis into the lower cost realm of lab-on-a-chip by proposing a CMOS-based device for individual cell manipulation, detection and analysis. Using this week's (Feb. 9) ISSCC conference as a platform, Silicon Biosystems (Bologna, Italy), in conjunction with the University of Bologna, proposed a biochip that it says could reduce the time period for common experiments from several days to just hours and find broad application in medical diagnostics, drug discovery and basic biomedical research.
