Researchers have found a way to shrink the size of the medical lab to the size of a microchip, using advances from nanotechnology to pave the way for radically new approaches to medical treatment and diagnosis.

Medical labs the size of microchips, which reduce all the components of a typical lab operation – from pipettes to beakers to test tubes – to the size of a microchip-sized wafer of glass or plastic, make it possible to perform rapid, accurate diagnostic tests with almost impossibly small test samples. In many cases, all it takes is a single drop of blood.

Instead of outsourcing this blood work to a lab, you will be able to do it on the spot in just a matter of a few minutes. In a best case scenario, researchers will be able to detect cancer earlier than ever before -- as well as recreate and then model human physiological processes at the microchip level.
