Microfluidics is to plumbing what microelectronics is to electricity: a revolution.
The cornerstone of this revolution is miniaturization at the micrometer scale, bringing new properties to the liquids handled: capillary rise of tree sap, micro-encapsulation of active ingredient, etc.
Miniaturization is also beneficial to technical components of studies and analysis of biological samples (e.g. lab-on-chip, medical diagnosis from a drop of blood), as well as medical devices (micropumps for injecting insulin into liver).
This scientific, technical and medical revolution is not new: 2 billion years ago the porous cell membrane, 400 million years ago the first tree (archaeopteris), in 1976 inkjet printer (IBM 4640), in 2000 the first microfluidic chip in PDMS, in 2015 a rapid diagnosis of the Ebola virus on a strip of paper, and today the Magelia.
Do more, faster, less expensive, with less sample, this is the major contribution of microfluidics on which the scientific and technical expertise of Inorevia is based.
