Lab on a Chip for Liver Complications

“A quarter of the 13 million patients worldwide who are undergoing treatment for HIV/AIDS or tuberculosis will die not from their diseases, but from liver complications caused by the treatment itself.” Because liver screenings were previously a costly process, many patients lacked access to these tests.
