BACKGROUND: Poor medication adherence decreases treatment efficacy and worsens clinical outcomes, but average rates of adherence to long-term pharmacological treatments for chronic illnesses are only about 50%. Interventions for improving medication adherence largely focus on patients rather than on physicians; however, the strategies shown to be effective are complex and difficult to implement in clinical practice. There is a need for new care models addressing the problem of medication adherence, integrating this problem into the patient care process...

Since the introduction of modern capillary electrophoresis (CE) by Jorgenson and Lukacs in 1981, CE has evolved into a highly mature and versatile separation technique. After a first decade of development studies and instrument commercialization, CE took its place among established analytical techniques and, for instance, became the method of choice for fast high-resolution DNA sequencing in the nineties of the last century. Although with a considerably smaller footprint than liquid and gas chromatography, CE remains to play an essential role in contemporary analytics...

Recent advances in modular DNA assembly techniques have enabled synthetic biologists to test significantly more of the available "design space" represented by "devices" created as combinations of individual genetic components. However, manual assembly of such large numbers of devices is time-intensive, error-prone, and costly. The increasing sophistication and scale of synthetic biology research necessitates an efficient, reproducible way to accommodate large-scale, complex, and high throughput device construction...
