Nanoscale discovery said to open new possibilities for tiny glass electrodes in microfluidic devices

By / May 31, 2010

A team University of Michigan researchers say they have figured out a way to nondestructively use glass as an electrode in certain microfluidic devices. Alan Hunt, a biomedical engineering associate professor at the university, and his research team accidentally discovered a way to get an electric current to pass nondestructively through a thin section of…
