Miniaturization of the classical test tube to picoliter dimensions is possible in monodisperse water-in-oil droplets that are generated in microfluidic devices. The establishment of standard unit operations for droplet handling and the ability to carry out experiments with DNA, proteins, cells and organisms provides the basis for the design of more complex workflows to address biological challenges. The emerging experimental format makes possible a quantitative readout for large numbers of… CONTINUE READING
