The emphasis is on simulating direct-current electrokinetic phenomena such as electroosmosis, electrophoresis, dielectrophoresis, and induced-charge electrokinetics; these phenomena have been widely used to manipulate fluids and particles in microfluidic and nanofluidic devices for various applications.
These methods include precipitation, electroplating, chemical coagulation, ion- exchange, membrane separation, and electrokinetics. However, these methods often acquire high operational costs [25-27].
Due to their small size, the lab-on-chip devices offer precise fluidic transportation via the use of electrokinetics or micro-pumping, efficient separation of the liquid samples and precision in the measurement of samples.
Due to their small size and the tiny fluidic volumes that they handle, the lab-on-chip devices offer: (a) precise microfluidic transportation via the use of electrokinetics or micropumping, (b) efficient separation of biochemical species, (c) precise measurements, (d) efficient control of the concentration of the reactants, and (e) fast and reliable synthesis of monodisperse bioproducts.
