Modeling the liquid filling in capillary well microplates for analyte preconcentration.

An attractive advantage of the capillary well microplate approach is the ability to conduct evaporative analyte preconcentration. We advance the use of hydrophobic materials for the wells which apart from reducing material loss through wetting also affords self entry into the well when the droplet size reduces below a critical value. Using Surface Evolver… CONTINUE READING
