Biological system analysis and biomolecular detection are the two fundamental components of biomedical analysis, of which bioanalysis is an essential component. Recently, scientists have concentrated on three areas: Point-of-care (POC) testing requires the integration and miniaturization of analytical devices. Critical information regarding the heterogeneity of a particular population can be obtained by evaluating at the single-cell or single-molecule level. High-throughput screening is necessary for large-scale analysis. Microfluidic techniques, which transform sampling, sample separation, mixing, chemical reaction, and detection, are being developed quickly to address these issues.

Another name for microfluidics is "laboratory on a chip" (LOC). Since its inception, microfluidic technologies have significantly advanced the disciplines of chemical synthesis, biofabrication, drug screening, and organ/tissue modeling, as well as experimental biology and biomedical research. Crucially, high sensitivity, mobility, and specificity can be achieved by integrating microfluidics with POC testing.
