microreactor

A device that hosts a nanoscale reaction in which reactants meet substrates in the narrowest (capillary) scale.

Pros
Increased efficiency, reaction speed and yield; safety, reliability, scalability, on-site/on-demand production, improved process control.

With regard to the geometry of the packaging, the "T"-shaped chip was easy to handle, and the microreaction chamber created was suitable for the hybridization and detection steps.
Aliquot stocks of suitable sizes are predispensed into microreaction vessels and are subsequently frozen for storage.
A microreaction purge vessel coupled with a condenser and heating jackets permitted introduction of the sample directly into the reduction solution via a gas-tight syringe (Hamilton, Reno, NV).
The data suggest that individual microreactions mitigate the impact of inhibitors on PCR amplification by retaining discernible positive signals even when moderate PCR inhibition is occurring in a droplet.
Uses are in droplet generation, reagent dispensing, cell manipulation, microreactions, and any application where precise control over fluid flow is required.
