Nanocrystalline Silicon Membranes Help Shrink the Power Source for Chip-Sized Electroosmotic Pumps

Nanocrystalline Silicon Membranes Help Shrink the Power Source for Chip-Sized Electroosmotic Pumps

The ability to shrink laboratory-scale processes to automated chip-sized systems would revolutionize biotechnology and medicine. For example, inexpensive and highly portable devices that process blood samples to detect biological agents such as anthrax are needed by the U.S. military and for homeland security efforts. [More]
