Abstract

The microfluidic probe (MFP) is a noncontact technology that applies the concept of hydrodynamic flow confinement (HFC) within a small gap to eliminate the need for closed microfluidic conduits and, therefore, overcome the conventional closed-system microfluidic limitation. Since its invention, the concept has experienced continuing advancement with several applications, ranging from manipulating mammalian cells and printing protein arrays to performing microfabrication.
