microfluidics

The science of building microminiaturized devices with chambers and tunnels for the containment and flow of fluids. With devices measured at the micrometer level and fluids measured in nanoliters and picoliters, microfluidics devices are widely used in inkjet printer heads and labs on a chip. The latter are used to analyze body fluids for medical purposes. See lab on a chip and nanofluidics.
