Lab-on-a-Chip and Microarray Biochip Market

The Lab-on-a-chip and Microarrays (Biochip) Market is Expected to be Flourished by Technological Advancements Leading to Point-of-Care Testing

Paragraph: The Lab-on-a-chip (LOC) and microarrays (biochip) refer to miniaturized testing devices that integrate one or several laboratory functions on a single integrated circuit or chip of just square millimeters to square centimeters in size. These devices are used for examination of biomolecular interactions, chemical reactions and cell populations in picoliter/nanoliter volumes. LOC and biochips offer faster detection, consume less energy and chemicals as compared to conventional laboratory methods. They find wide applications in point-of-care testing, disease diagnosis, food safety testing, forensic analysis and environmental monitoring.

The global Lab-on-a-chip and Microarrays (Biochip) Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 31.91 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 13% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
