Droplet Microfluidics

Droplets are defined here as water droplets dispersed in an immiscible oil phase or oil droplets dispersed in water. These droplets are contained and motivated through microfluidic conduits having dimensions most easily measured in microns. Droplets microfluidics is emerging as a reliable engineering tool for performing biological operations such as analyte encapsulation, sampling, metering, dilution, …
