As the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), on-site molecular diagnosis is becoming increasingly important. In this study, a freeze-drying method was introduced for PCR reagents to meet the requirements of microfluidic molecular diagnosis. Using this method, PCR components were pre-mixed and freeze-dried as a bead, which could be transferred into microfluidic chips easily. Read More
