Microfluidic devices have great potential for medical and life science applications. Recent progresses in microfluidic devices have enabled precise analysis of a small amount of proteins and drugs in blood or urine. We have developed that several immunoassay systems using the microfluidic devices for rapid diagnosis of biomakers. In this presentation, I will present about several topics: on-chip immunoassay using hydrogel pillar structures, on-chip therapeutic drug monitoring, and so forth. Moreover, future challenges and potentials of microfluidic devices for biotechnology, medicine, and clinical diagnostics will be also discussed.
