A Microfluidic Nanofilter

This experiment was developed by Ken Lux and was inspired by the research on “virtual walls” in microfluidic devices by Prof. David Beebe (University of Wisconsin – Madison) and Prof. Jeffrey Moore (University of Illinois – Urbana/Champaign): Zhao, Moore, and Beebe, “Surface-Directed Liquid Flow Inside Microchannels”, Science, 291:1023-1026, 2001.
