Abstract A large part of the excitement behind microfluidics is in its potential for producing practical devices, but surprisingly few lab-on-a-chip based technologies have been successfully introduced into the market. Here, we review current work in commercializing microfluidic technologies, with a focus on point-of-care diagnostics applications. We will also identify challenges to commercialization, including lessons drawn from our experience in Claros Diagnostics. Moving forward, we discuss the need to strike a balance between achieving real-world impact with integrated devices versus design of novel single microfluidic components.
