If this sample needs to be transported across the chip through a micro-channel with a typical cross-section dimensions of 500x500 microns within the allotted 15 min (the total channel volume cannot exceed the sample volume), the necessary linear speed would be in excess of 1 mm/s, a linear flow velocity that still cannot be provided by electro-kinetic pumps with the highest throughput.
