Chromatography Peaks in Silicon Valley
 
When is a column not a column? We tell the story and meet the team behind PharmaFluidics – “The micro-Chip Chromatography Company” – and see what’s on the near horizon for μPAC technology...
 
 
 
 
(S)POC Analysis: Highly Logical, Captain.
 
There is a need for point-of-care tests that are affordable, sensitive, specific, user-friendly, rapid and robust, equipment-free, and deliverable, says Rich Whitworth. But when will we see them?
 
 
 
 
Fit for Print
 
Drug testing usually involves the collection and storage of blood and urine – potential biohazards that need to be properly stored and transported. But what if was as quick and easy as taking someone’s fingerprints?
