Microfluidics Technology Crowding the POCT Industry

‘Microfluidic lab-on-a-chip technologies can meet the requirement of the POCT since they can miniaturize and integrate most of the functional modules into a small chip’, says RNCOS.


Noida, UP -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/22/2015 -- Microfluidics is the science of designing, manufacturing, and formulating devices and processes that deal with volumes of fluid on the order of nanoliters. Some examples of systems and processes that employ this technology include inkjet printers, blood-cell-separation equipment, biochemical assays, chemical synthesis, genetic analysis, drug screening, electrochromatography, surface micromachining, laser ablation and mechanical micro milling.

New movements in the healthcare industry have affirmed Point-of-Care Testing (POCT) as the most proficient and effectual delivery of healthcare. In addition to it, the microfluidic technology has developed into a new arrangement of research areas that focus on incorporation of laboratory protocols into miniaturized equipment known as a lab on the chip.

According to "Global Point-of-Care Diagnostics Market Outlook 2020", the global POCT industry is at a very crucial stage with POCT expanding itself into diverse disease areas, such as cancer and HIV diagnostics. Currently, the United States accounts for almost 45% of the total POCT market, followed by regions, such as Europe and Japan. At the same time countries such as Japan, China, India, Brazil and Mexico are expected to evolve as hotspots for development of POCT technology in the future.
