Blood is an important element in the human body. Blood test is the most commonly performed medical test as it provides the information regarding the health of a person. Blood Plasma separation is very essential; otherwise it can cause testing errors. The conventional laboratorial test requires expensive equipment and this set up is not well equipped in developing countries. The laboratorial tests are also time consuming and require large volume of blood. So it is essential to have a miniaturized device for low costs and less time consuming blood test.
