What is Microfluidics?
It is both the science which studies the behavior of fluids through micro-channels, and the technology of manufacturing microminiaturized devices containing chambers and channels through which fluids flow.
When used as a sensor, miniaturisation coupled with automatisation enables to develop fast, in situ, autonomous.
This technology is particularly well-suited to replace remote laboratory analysis with on-site analysis, enabling real-time management of monitored processes.
When used as microreactors, this technology allows to develop micro and nano emulsions, multiple emulsions, encapsulation, screening, liquid-liquid extraction, among others.
Advantages of this technology are numerous, and include everything from improving stability, to optimizing material characteristics, to enhanced delivery of active ingredients.
