    Abstract

    The Medimate Minilab is a new technology platform for the measurement of ionic species in blood by lay users, which was introduced in the market in 2013. The Minilab technology is based on microchip capillary electrophoresis, a well-known technology for laboratory analysis of ionic species. Historically, companies like Beckman Coulter Life Sciences, Helena Biosciences, and others provide bench-top capillary electrophoresis devices for clinical analysis. Specialized lab personnel can identify and quantify species by performing capillary electrophoresis with the aid of dedicated software programs.
