On-Board Microfluidic Components
Active control elements that are part of the microfluidic device, and are controlled externally with pressure, electrical or mechanical force. On-board controls include valves, pumps, de-bubbling, and metering elements that are part of the consumable.

On-Chip Sensing
Integration of sensors and detection methods directly onto microfluidic chips for real-time monitoring and analysis of fluid properties and reactions.

Optical Microscopy
Imaging techniques used to visualize and analyze microfluidic processes and samples, often integrated with microfluidic devices for in situ analysis.

Organ-on-a-Chip
Microfluidic devices that mimic the structure and function of human organs, enabling studies of organ physiology, disease modeling, and drug testing.
