Micromixing within microfluidic devices.

  title={Micromixing within microfluidic devices.},
  author={Lorenzo Capretto and Wei Cheng and Martyn Hill and Xunli Zhang},
  journal={Topics in current chemistry},
Micromixing is a crucial process within microfluidic systems such as micro total analysis systems (μTAS). A state-of-art review on microstructured mixing devices and their mixing phenomena is given. The review first presents an overview of the characteristics of fluidic behavior at the microscale and their implications in microfluidic mixing processes. According to the two basic principles exploited to induce mixing at the microscale, micromixers are generally classified as being passive or… CONTINUE READING
