Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Digital microfluidic biochips (DMFBs) implement novel protocols for highly sensitive and specific biomolecular recognition. However, attackers can exploit supply-chain vulnerabilities to pirate DMFBs' proprietary protocols or modify their results, with serious consequences for laboratory analysis, healthcare, and biotechnology innovation.
