Condensation and separation of microdroplet contents by nanodroplet formation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper reports the condensation and separation method of the microdroplets' contents by utilizing nanodroplet formation at the microdroplets' interface. In this method, contents of the microdroplets were condensed or separated depending on hydrophobicity and the size of the contents. In condensation condition, 300-fold condensation can be achieved within 10 min. This method is expected to increase the applicability of the microdroplet-based analysis systems.
