Most lab-on-a-chip devices are designed to move and direct fluids. Thus, understanding the principles of microfluidics is essential to developing ever more sophisticated miniature analysis systems. Nolan Polson of Thermo Biostar and Mark Hayes of Arizona State University discuss the challenges of microfluidics, list approaches that are being explored, and propose new directions.
