I'd appreciate more perspective on the state of this whole lab-on-a-chip sector. I have another startup talking to me for a debut in a couple weeks and I am trying to get a deeper grasp of the current state of the art.

Here is a recent article from the American Chemical Society on the topic.

Lab-on-chip is a really promising technology for semiconductor industry in future. Research institutes as well as companies are workign in this sector. It has huge potential for areas like biosensor development, CMOS based micro camera development, EDA tool development, data analysis application development etc. Besides developed countries, developing countries will be a potential market for the solution. Besides VC funding lot of government funding will come in this sector.

Regards,

Barun

rick: http://orion.bme.columbia.edu/~sia/Chin_Linder_LOC_2012.pdf might be a decent(but a bit old) review of the sector. Look for the conclusion part in the end.

Also there's theranos, probaly the most advanced commercialization effort of this tech.

Cost will change Bioinformatics and it will enhance drug discovery also.

Just as in the discusions after a recent EET column, let's be careful to distinguish "DNA sensing" from "DNA sequencing".  Two totally different beasts.  I don't really see much in the PR push by InSilixa - basically an integrated optical hybridization sensor.  Plus, it is not like this is exactly new news

The CMOS light sensor crowd may have an interesting perspective on this

@groovyGeek :what seems unique about this is : its probably close to commercial , its costs are good, and it might be targeted to consumers. if true , the combination is powerful. also they don't Mention patents ,which is interesting and might be good for the field.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
