Droplet Microfluidics

Droplet-based microfluidic systems have been shown to be compatible with many chemical and biological reagents and capable of performing a variety of “digital-fluidic” operations that can be rendered programmable and reconfigurable. This platform has dimensional scaling benefits that have enabled controlled and rapid mixing of fluids in the droplet reactors, resulting in decreased reaction times. In addition to using the droplets as microreactors ranging from the nano- to femtoliter range; we are using the droplet-based systems to directly synthesize nano-particles and encapsulate many biological entities for biomedicine and solar, and sensor applications.
