Microfluidic Paper-Based Analytical Devices for Point-of-Care Diagnosis
Point-of-care testing (POCT) shows its significant importance in academic and social affairs (Jansen et al. 1998; Wu et al. 1999). From commercialized products to laboratory prototypes, the creative atmosphere in this research field has maintained its vitality and drawn increasing attention from researchers in related areas. There have been many inventions that have changed the practice of medicine at the point of care in either rural or developed areas, and one prominent candidate for POCT is paper-based microfluidic analytical devices, also called Chip-on-a-Paper, or paper-based POC.
