    The invention provides a lab-on-a-chip device comprising a micro channel for a fluid, wherein the micro channel comprises a circumferential channel wall, wherein the channel wall comprises a first electrode, a second electrode, and a floating third electrode. The device can be used in a method for the analysis of an analyte fluid comprising flowing the analyte fluid through the channel of the electronic lab-on-a-chip device by measuring an electric signal between the first and the second electrode, especially measuring the electrical impedance between the first electrode and the second electrode. This may be used for instance for the analyses of mammalian semen.
