Electrostatic flocking is a technique for depositing vertically-aligned microfibers onto an adhesive-coated substrate using a high electrostatic field. Emmanuel Delamarche and co-workers use this technique on page 2672 to pattern layers of flock fibers resulting in 2D and 3D microfluidic networks, which fill spontaneously due to capillary action. With this approach, multifunctional microfluidic platforms for diagnostic applications can be produced at extremely low cost.
