Bio)chemical sensors based on paper substrates show attractive features such as being low cost, portable and disposable. Therefore, the technology is currently used in urinary dipsticks and immunochromatographic test strip. In recent years, many research groups report studies on microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (μPADs). In spite of the simplicity of paper-based platforms, μPADs enable performing complicated analytical procedures, multiplex target analysis and equipment-free detection. Due to these useful functions, μPADs are paid attention for point-of-care testing (POCT) and for field-deployable analysis. Herein, we introduce the fabrication methodology and clinical applications of μPADs developed by our research group.
