The invention of new materials has continuously driven the development of lab-on-a-chip (LOC) and related technologies. The readout or detection of assay results in LOC technologies has particularly benefited from new materials. This paper reviews recent developments (2006 to early 2010) that employ nanotechnology, electrochemisty, optical methods and so forth, with an emphasis on biochemical targets as the analytes.
