There's a journal for this:Lab on a Chip
It's a good lead, but most of the articles deal with miniaturized components that only work in a laboratory setting, ie the support equipment is large. I am looking for systems that are integral and really small, requiring only power and data interfaces, such as are generally available in spacecraft.
Looking for any leads on use of existing micro-controllers like Arduino for biological research. Cells are small, micro-controllers are small, there should be a class of experiments suitable for extremely small bioreactors. Anyone working on this?
