Integration of microfluidic structures and microelectronic chips is appealing only if the required downscaling for microfluidics does not compromise the fluidic throughput. Here, such integration of microfluidic inertial focusing is feasible by exploring the scaling laws of throughput-per-footprint (TPFP). This study reveals the interplay between theory, the effect of Reynolds numbers between 75 and 1500 on focusing, the entry length for the laminar flow to develop, and pressure resistance of the microchannels, in maximizing TPFP.
