Lab on a Chip system identifies your DNA

  1. Jun 28, 2013 #1
    Hey, I just came across this idea that sounds really cool in theory, but I'm wondering if anyone out knows if it's actually technically possible:

    Lab-on-a-chip detectors http://marblar.com/challenge/Micro-mixer/idea/1237

    So the analyte is passively mixed by a tiny microfluidic mixer which is then passed onto the chip that detects DNA.This apparently would be a much faster process than the current system.

    However, I have doubts that this is necessary because they are already doing this without the mixing device. What do you guys think?
