Abstract

This trends article discusses the interface between droplet microfluidics and micro-scale chemical separation. Droplet microfluidics has witnessed explosive growth over the past few years, but the use of droplets to facilitate chemical separation is still in its infancy. This article reviews the current state-of-the-art in this new area and provides an outlook on the role of this new technique in cellular analysis.
