Abstract

This chapter will focus on the role that miniaturization, in particular using microfluidic systems, can play in the delivery of lab-on-a-chip devices to perform the detection procedures previously described. The chapter starts with an introduction to the field of microfluidics, covering microfabrication, the underlying fluid mechanics and the types of components which can be incorporated to deliver more complex fluid handling capability. Next, the chapter presents how microfluidic devices can be utilized to enhance the performance of the detection methods proposed in Chapters 5'8Chapter 5Chapter 6Chapter 7Chapter 8 as well as to the sample processing techniques described in Chapter 4. Particular attention is devoted to examples concerning waterborne pathogens, given in each of the categories of waterborne pathogens.
