Sample Preparation
The process needed to take a raw biological sample, such a blood, urine, saliva, or sweat, and introduce it to an assay system. For point of care devices, it often means a conditioning or dilution step to ensure variations of the sample matrix do not hinder quantitative measure of the target analyte.

Separation
The process of isolating or purifying components within a fluid sample using techniques such as chromatography or electrophoresis in microfluidic devices.

Single-Cell Analysis
Techniques for studying the properties and behaviors of individual cells within microfluidic devices, enabling precise biological and medical research.

Surface Treatment
The modification of surfaces within microfluidic devices to control fluid behavior, adhesion, or reaction kinetics.
