Quan Q, Zhang Y. Lab-on-a-Tip (LOT): Where Nanotechnology can Revolutionize Fibre Optics [Internet]. Nanobiomedicine 2015;2(3):1-5.
Recently developed lab-on-a-chip technologies integrate multiple traditional assays on a single chip with higher sensitivity, faster assay time, and more streamlined sample operation. We discuss the prospects of the lab-on-a-tip platform, where assays can be integrated on a miniaturized tip for in situ and in vivo analysis. It will resolve some of the limitations of available lab-on-a-chip platforms and enable next generation multifunctional in vivo sensors, as well as analytical techniques at the single cell or even sub-cellular levels
