Here, we demonstrate a novel “Lab-in-a-Tip” technology which is based on colorimetric reaction with an analyte within a disposable measurement tip. The “Lab-in-a-Tip” is combined with our personal hand-help photometer, the “PHOTOPETTE” for optical read out. Less sample volume required and instant onspot detection are the advantages of this technology. We demonstrated pH, protein and nucleic acids measurements in our “Lab-in-a-Tip design” combined with a personal hand help photometer developed by our collaborator Tip Biosystems Pte Ltd. (This work is supported by National Research Foundation Singapore, NRF2014NRF-POC002-045).
