Digital microfluidics has recently emerged as a new paradigm in the world of lab-on-a-chip technology. A wide variety of bioanalyses have been successfully implemented in this format. This paper reviews the various techniques that have been adapted to digital microfluidic systems, and the current state of the field. [Figure not available: see fulltext.]

    Glycated hemoglobin is widely used in the management of diabetes mellitus. At least 300,000 Americans with diabetes mellitus have the hemoglobin (Hb) C or S trait. The accuracy of HbA1c methods can be adversely affected by the presence of these traits. We evaluated the effects of HbC and HbS...
