    Chip-to-world interfaces are of prime importance for the implementation of lab-on-a-chip devices in high-throughput environments. In this contribution, a matrix of interfacing methods for bi-directional small liquid exchange between chip based microchannels and robotics is presented. The central underlying principle is the use of a hydrophobic coated micromachined port in the channel wall giving direct access to the liquid inside.
