Themed collection Lab on a Chip Review Articles 2021
Review: tomographic imaging flow cytometry
Within the last decades, conventional flow cytometry (FC) has evolved as a powerful measurement method in clinical diagnostics, biology, life sciences and healthcare.
The vascular niche in next generation microphysiological systems
To successfully generate vascularized microphysiological systems, researchers must balance several engineering strategies to generate organotypic phenotypes including endothelial cell sourcing, extracellular matrix components and shear control.
Recent advances in integrated solid-state nanopore sensors
Nanopores are powerful single molecule sensors that have a wide range of applications from single molecule biophysics to medical diagnostics. This review covers all aspects of nanopore sensor integration into increasingly complex lab-on-chip systems.
Biohybrid sensor for odor detection
Biohybrid odorant sensors are sensing devices that utilize a biological olfactory system. This review introduces recent progress of biohybrid sensors for practical odorant monitoring and provides issues and viewpoints on multiple odorant recognition.
Microfluidic technologies for immunotherapy studies on solid tumours
Immunotherapy is a powerful and targeted cancer treatment that exploits the body's immune system to attack and eliminate cancerous cells.
Microfluidic formation of crystal-like structures
In this critical review, we aim at providing a holistic representation of crystal-like structure formation mediated by hydrodynamic interactions in microfluidic devices.
Membrane integration into PDMS-free microfluidic platforms for organ-on-chip and analytical chemistry applications
This review provides an introduction into membrane-based microfluidic systems and their application for analytical and organ-on-chip systems as well as a comprehensive overview of approaches for the integration of membranes into PDMS-free systems.
Recent advances in lab-on-paper diagnostic devices using blood samples
Overview of integrated lab-on-paper diagnostic devices.
Healthy and diseased in vitro models of vascular systems
A critical review of healthy and diseased in vitro models of the vascular system and in particular for atherosclerosis, aneurysm, and thrombosis.
