Rising technological advancements:

Technological advancements in microfluidic components are focused on making operational processes in healthcare industries easy and reliable. Integrated microfluidic components have been used in research labs for over twenty years. In the last decade, their use in life sciences and medical research has increased significantly because of the invention of soft lithography and large-scale microfluidic integration.

These technological advancements have increased the throughput of device production, improved rapid prototyping efforts, and enabled researchers to enhance the complexity and sophistication of experiments that can be performed on a microfluidic chip. With technological advancements, microfluidic components are quickly becoming a key technology in an expanding range of fields, such as medical sciences, pharmaceuticals, biosensing, bioactuation, and chemical synthesis. This is indicative of the transition of microfluidics from a promising R&D tool to being utilized in data collection with AI during clinical trials. Lab-on-a-chip technology, in microfluidics particularly, is a powerful platform for the construction and implementation of AI in a large-scale, cost-effective, high-throughput, automated, and multiplexed manner.
