Wild Card's description 
"Labs-on-a-chip" have been introduced for time-saving and automatic diagnosis and detection of diseases. These new forms of diagnosis are comparable to ticket machines which are located in all areas of daily life such as supermarkets, gas stations or pharmacies: The patient comes by anytime, enters his symptoms if necessary, gives a blood or urine sample and receives a diagnosis and prescription or referral to a medical specialist or pharmacist from the machine.
