There is considerable market interest for miniature blood diagnostic kits for cholesterol, ovulation, glucose, bacteria, leukemia cells, coagulation tests, drugs etc. However, the presence of blood cells in the blood samples introduces an array of micro-fluidic issues that have become main obstacles to commercialization of these products. We discuss some of these anomalous micro-fluidic features of blood here. Some devices and designs developed at the Notre Dame Center for Micro-fluidics and Medical Diagnostics will be presented as solutions to these micro-fluidic challenges.
