Microfluidics introduces the theory and practice of fluid flow on small scales. The exquisite control of such flow at low Reynolds numbers allows liquids to be processed in either a well-defined co-flow or a well-defined segmented-flow fashion. Both lays a ground for high-throughput analytics and advanced materials design. With that, this book is ideal for research scientists and Ph.D. students in the fields of chemistry, chemical engineering, biotechnology, and materials science.
Gives the fundamentals in the area of microfluidic chemical engineering with handy tips on practical applications.
Smart tools for the lab: Take-home message at the end of the practical subchapters as ready-to-use mind map and summary tables.
