Wash-Free Droplet Diagnostic on a Chip

Project Information

Problem

Droplet-based ultrasensitive assays have a great untapped potential for point-of-care diagnostics but are currently confined to laboratory settings due to the necessary instrumentation.

Solution

This project is developing a portable, wash-free digital assay.
