Microfluidics-based chip performs 1,000 experiments at same time

Researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) have developed a microchip that can perform more than 1,000 experiments at the same time. These scientists have labeled the chip process as based on microfluidics, or the channeling of minute amounts of liquids and chemicals. The chip is designed to be plugged into a computer so chemists can automatically perform multiple chemical reactions on the chip.

So it's basically like a mini petri dish that's got a thousand segments to it allowing for a crap load of experiments to be conducted and analysed at the same time?

Well whatever it is. It's certainly useful.
