FAST CHIP DETECTS EFFECTS OF POISON MIMICKING HUMAN METABOLISM

The effect that toxic substances have on, for example, hemoglobin in blood, can now be tested in a fast way using a new lab-on-a-chip. UT scientist Floris van den Brink developed a fast and efficient mixer for this. Substances foreign to the human body – toxic substances, or medication, for example – can have...
