Efficient Stirring for Lab-On-A-Chip Applications
The use of a miniature device to preform electrochemistry has many advantages in applications such as analysis, synthesis separation and detection. However, in using such small devices, effective mixing of the analyte with reagents in a timely manner is often difficult or impossible. This is because the small size of the spaces and channels of th...
