Temperature- and flow-enhanced detection specificity of mutated DNA against the wild type with reporter microspheres.

It was shown that at room temperature, flow initially increased the binding of both the MT and WT at lower flow rates but decreased the binding at flow rates ≥4 ml min(-1) due to the increase in the flow-induced impingement force on the FRMs to overcome the bound pDNA and the WT to the GCG at higher flow rates.
