Definition Edit

A lab-on-a-chip (LOC) is a device that integrates and scales down biomedical and other analytical laboratory functions and processes to a miniaturized chip format.

Overview Edit

Their small size and low power requirements, and the speed at which they provide results, offer possibilities for moving many diagnostic and analytical activities out of fixed, centralized, facilities and provide real-time information to, for example, health staff at surgeries and other remote locations. LOCs are therefore an important component of "e-health."
