Lab On a Chip

Lab On a Chip, or LOC, is a term that has recently become possible, due to the emergence of biochip laboratories, and simulation programs, hardwired into PROM chips.

A LOC is essentially exactly what is sounds like; an experimental laboratory, which conducts experiments either on a biochip with fluid running through it, or entirely in virtual simulation.

Below, we offer a selection of links from our resource databases which may match this term.

Podcast: The Brain Chip - A Prison For Your Mind
Here at VirtualWorldlets, we are always keen to bring you news of the latest improvements in neuroprosthetics, but just to be fair, it seemed only right to also show you some of the work of the other side of the coin. This podcast consists of a mash-up of speeches, film clips and documentary segments, from an author trying to educate as to how brain implants are utterly evil.

The BOND Nose
The BOND nose is a project working at the opposite end of the spectrum to most attempts to integrate electronics with the sense of smell. Rather than deciper how the brain does it, BOND places olfactory proteins on an integrated chip, and decodes the signals itself. The goal? A hand-held, artificial nose more powerful than a dog's but with the same wide olfactory range.

BioChips: A Hospital in a shoebox
A biochip is a computer chip, that is a mix of circuits for electrical signals, and tiny canals for fluid, usually blood. There are many different definitions for a biochip. Some class biochips as those RFID chips injected into humans and animals. A few consider a petridish full of lab-grown rat brain cells hooked to a pc as a biochip. Others regard prosthetic interface chips as biochips, whilst still others lab-on-a-chips to be biochips. So who is right?
