Otolith microchemistry: Validation of the effects of physiology, age and environment on otolith composition.
For example, results of otolith microchemistry indicate that Hornaday and Brock River anadromous char are strikingly similar in ecology and life history traits (e.g., age-at-first-migration and frequency of migration to sea), which suggests that they could be from the same stock (Roux et al., 2011b).
Microfluidic technologies have found many applications in fields such as medical diagnostics, biotechnology and microchemistry [1], Many of the devices used in these fields contain various micro-sized features which have geometries such as channels, pillars, wells, ridges, and arrays of features, the dimensions of which are orders of magnitude smaller than the structured surface area [2], The successful development of such devices is highly dependent on manufacturing technologies which can help replicate microfeatures reliably and economically in mass production.
