7 “ZOMBIE” Microfluidic Cartridge Early Indicators

Recommendations to Avoid Non-Functional Cartridges The popular Netflix series “The Walking Dead” is all about “Zombies” – people that look normal but lack the ability to function as normal. In microfluidics, there are cartridges that seem perfectly normal and functional but are not due to internal defects. They are “the walking dead“ or “Zombie cartridges” destined […]
