Singularly alluring

Microfluidics, the science of moving and manipulating nanoliter or microliter volumes through micron-scale channels, is playing an increasingly outsize role in the life sciences. For some researchers, microfluidics holds the key to low-cost diagnostics. Others use the technology to evaluate the quality of nucleic acid preparations or to drive targeted DNA sequencing. But for an ever-larger pool of researchers, microfluidics offers a way to reduce biology to a fundamental unit, the cell… Read more at The Scientist.
