A chip off the old block: A prototype of a miniaturized catalysis laboratory is successfully applied for screening enantioselective biocatalysts created by directed evolution of enzymes. For this purpose an integrated microfluidic catalysis/analysis chip has been developed (see scheme SO: sample outlet, SI: alternative sample inlet, BI: buffer outlet).
