Lab-on-a-Chip and Fluorescence Sensing on the Microscale

This chapter provides a brief overview of the issues encountered in lab-on-a-chip or micro total analysis systems (µTAS) that employ fluorescence detection. µTAS are composed of multiple microfabricated devices (which may or may not be monolithic) that are combined as components of a system that performs chemical

and biochemical analysis.
