Microfluidic Assay For Estrogen
Measuring estrogen levels in breast tissue can be used to identify women at high risk for breast cancer or to monitor the effects of breast cancer therapy. However, the standard methods available are impractical because they require large amounts of tissue. Aaron R. Wheeler, Robert F. Casper, and coworkers of the University of Toronto have now developed a miniaturized, automated, and integrated method using droplet-based digital microfluidics (DMF) to measure estrogen in 1-µL . . .
