It has been shown that the formation of calcium phosphate crystals can be detected in patient blood using a polymer microchip manufactured by ultrasonic processing. Ultrasonic processing is recently evolving for the fabrication of low-cost microfluidic devices from thermoplastic polymers. The formation of calcium phosphate crystals can be measured in the blood serum of a patient both optically from a change in turbidity or in electrical resistance.
