Much research has not been done in the field of Microfluidics yet because working in this field means working in the range of tens to hundreds of micrometer that requires much precise handling of the volume of the fluid. There is an essential need for the rapid diagnosis of the blood for detecting the various vital diseases affecting the human body. These diseases, if not diagnosed properly would reach to a vital stage, which may deplete the physical and mental condition of the human body and even cause death. There are many methods developed for the blood diagnosis but these conventional methods which are available require more time for the detection of the diseases and also these tests become cumbersome due to a large number of equipment required for the same. An idea is to be developed a device which would help in plasma or serum separation from the blood and also diagnose the blood in a shorter time than the conventional methods which would be inexpensive and portable. This lab-on-chip device focuses mostly on the principle and development of microfluidics.
