Microfluidics has been shown to be a very useful platform in the detection and diagnosis of human diseases as it is fast, sensitive and requires very small amount of samples and reagents. Here, we will showcase several microfluidic biochips that we have developed to detect and diagnose cancer as well as bacterial infection from the blood of patients. We will also demonstrate how some of these microfluidic devices can be further developed into platforms for therapeutic purposes such as for blood cleansing.
