Despite a long history as an analytical tool, paper has come into significant academic and industrial focus over the last ∼10 years. This resurgence coincided with the seminal work by Whitesides group in 2007 on photoresist patterning of paper to create well-defined microfluidic channels [1]. The exponential growth can in large part be linked to key innovations, which have taken paper-based analytical devices from a niche apparatus in a handful analytical labs to a powerful tool used across a variety of disciplines around the world. Here, we outline some of the key advances and their impact.
