Overview:
The search for better detection strategies in microfluidic devices is still very active. This is due to the difficulty of fit the pre-established schemes for new matrices and materials employed. Requirements of low limits of detection, selectivity, robustness and precision have driven to the new detection strategies adapted or included in micro analysis systems. The integration of the detection to the microfabrication protocol has also a significant impact, sometimes allowing the disposability and point-of-care application of such devices. In this session, different aspects of the detection strategies are addressed, covering the conventional fluorescence and electrochemical and incorporating new approaches, such as remote monitoring and microsensors
