The device is capable of testing the damage that nicotine does to human DNA, and was used to raise awareness of the potential harm caused by vaping. Lab equipment the size of a microchip In experiments, a microfludic device was created as a ‘lab on a chip’, i.e. a scaled-down version of a process typically found in a research laboratory. The device measures the reaction of substances mixed inside the chip’s hollow […]
