Executive Summary :

In last decade, microfluidics-based platforms have attracted significant attention for the development of biomedical diagnostic sensors, due to their rapid, portable, and low-cost based paradigm of operation. Many of these devices use either qualitative or semi-quantitative approach of detection. Therefore, to improve the sensitivity of the detection approach, this project aims to integrate these miniaturized devices with smart electronic gadgets for easy, and inexpensive diagnostics of multiple diseases.
