#483 - Advances in Electrokinetics and Electrophoresis - DNA Applications (T3010)
Electrokinetic techniques continue to play a leading role in technologies ranging from nanoparticle characterization and directed electronics assembly to micropumps and micromixers to biosensors and DNA sequencing. In this session, we invite submissions related to the development of new technologies in any of these areas, from both the fundamental and applied perspectives. Suitable topics include: microfluidic networks and their applications (including mixing, reaction, separations, or transport processes); complex particles and surfaces (nanoparticles, heterogeneous particles, biological cells, soft particles); electrokinetically-directed assembly; electrokinetic effects in non-polar media; novel applications of electrokinetic phenomena (biosensors, displays, environmental or chemical assays); and novel measurement techniques (electrophoretic mobility, charge nonuniformity, forces, electro-acoustics, electro-optics).
