Flow Injection Analysis (FIA)

Flow injection analysis is a technique for automating sample analysis on a micro or semimicro scale. Sample volumes and flowrates are similar to those used in HPLC, although FIA is essentially a low pressure technique. FIA may be used as a sample introduction and reaction interface in most conventional instrumental analysis techniques. It is the historical precursor of microfluidics and the "Lab on a chip" concept.
