The article discusses research being done on the use of microfluidics to produce radioactive molecules for positron electron tomography (PET), published in the 2005 issue of the "Science." Chung-Cheng Lee and colleagues designed a chip made up of miniature fluid channels, chambers and valves. The PET mini-chip uses pumps to deliver small volumes of the components needed to make radioactive fluorodeoxyglucose.
