The field of microfluidics deals with transport phenomena in miniaturized channels with dimensions of order 10-100 micrometers. In this part, we look at how fluid handling operations in chemistry and biology laboratories can be integrated on a small microfluidic chip. The flow physics at micro-scale differs significantly from that at macro-scale. Dr. Bahga discusses how interesting flow regimes at micro-scale can be used for performing controlled reactions, immunoassays, filtration, and highly parallel reactions in droplets.
