Compartmentalization of Chemically Separated Components into Droplets


  • We gratefully acknowledge support of this research by the National Institutes of Health (EB005197).


Not merely a drop in the ocean: The integration of capillary electrophoresis (CE) with droplet generation driven by electroosmotic flow enabled the compartimentalization of molecular components separated by CE in a series of droplets (see picture; the green bars represent the separated analytes). The droplet-confined bands can be docked and studied on a chip.
