Chemical Analysis: microfluidics versus nanofluidics

Programme KNAW Visiting Professors Lecture SeriesIn the past two decades, microfluidics has been shown to offer a versatile platform for chemical analysis. The ease of miniaturization, integration and automation offered by micromachining techniques has generated many applications in analytical and clinical chemistry. Does it make sense to scale down further and design nanofluidic tools for chemical analytical applications, or is this just a fashionable craze? Andreas Manz and Jan Eijkel will discuss this issue from opposite positions.
