Microfluidics is a field in science which deals with the physical properties of fluids and gases in small volumes – capillary forces as passive force or driven by valves and pumps through active force.
Chemical reactions for example take place precisely within a short timeframe. Substances, particles, cells are measured, observed and manipulated.
The technique allows highly efficient devices at low manufacturing costs. More importantly various functions can be integrated into one microchip, that is different chemical, biological or biochemical processes can take plane in one chip, consecutively or simultaneously. The advancement of the market of microfluidics will lead to the automatization of the optimised processes.
