A biochip is an assembly of miniaturized test sites that are organized on a compact substrate, which allows many tests to be executed at the same time to reach higher throughput and speed.
Usually, the surface area of a biochip is no bigger than a fingernail. Like a computer chip that can accomplish millions of mathematical tasks in one second, a biochip can implement thousands of biological responses, such as decoding genes, in the duration of a few seconds.
The growth of the Middle East and Africa Biochips Market is mainly driven by factors such as an increased application in cancer study, surge in the utilization of personalized medicine, and increased commercial uses of biochips.
