LABONFOILVision ObjectivesPortable diagnostic tools are urgently required to ensure rapid, The objective of the LabOnFoil project is to develop ultra-low-costaffordable and simple analysis in many scenarios that will laboratories on chips (LOC) without compromising timebenefit our society (e.g. in; hospitals, airports, doctor’s practice, response, sensitivity or simplicity of use.

The future mass production of these novel diagnostic components will be guaranteed by the development of manufacturingThe new testing devices will consist of a lab-on-a-chip (LOC) equipment. This will provide, at last, a standardised solution toembedded in a smartcard or a skin patch. The Labcard and Skin manufacture truly ultra-low-cost Lab-on-a-chip microsystems. ThePatch components will be manufactured using a reel-to-reel dramatic cost reduction will be based on the use of large filmssystem radically decreasing the price to 1% of existing systems instead of wafer substrates. The smart mobile phone will offer(wafer based). a vast range of straightforward communication and interface capabilities. This strategy will turn a smartphone into a portable diagnostic device. The Labcards and the skin patches will demonstrate the wide range of applications and the potential of the technology.
