Biomicrofluidics is an online-only journal published by the American Institute of Physics to rapidly disseminate research in elucidating fundamental physicochemical mechanisms associated with microfluidic and nanofluidic phenomena as well as novel microfluidic and nanofluidic techniques for diagnostic, medical, biological, pharmaceutical, environmental, and chemical applications.
Sorting stem cells
When an embryonic stem cell is in the first stage of its development it has the potential to grow into any type of cell in the body, a state scientists call undifferentiated.
New ways to stretch DNA and other organic molecules
By taking advantage of the unique patterns generated when two immiscible fluids flow together, scientists have developed a new tool for studying tiny biomolecules.
Engineers use droplet microfluidics to create glucose-sensing microbeads
Tiny beads may act as minimally invasive glucose sensors for a variety of applications in cell culture systems and tissue engineering
