Mapping vortex-like hydrodynamic flow in microfluidic networks using fluorescence correlation spectroscopy.

The ability to quickly measure flow parameters in microfluidic devices is critical for micro total analysis system (microTAS) applications. Macrofluidic methods to assess flow suffer from limitations that have made conventional methods unsuitable for the flow behavior profiling. Single molecule fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) has been employed… (More)
