Real-time analysis of living cells requires microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) with multiple detection and fluidic capabilities. In this paper we present progress towards a modular architecture for life-on-a-chip microsystems. Capabilities explored for use in MEMS modules include efficient mixing of fluids, genetically engineered reporters, microformat sensor patches, dielectrophoretic capture and cell manipulation, and electroimpedance spectroscopy.
