Earn 1.0 Professional Development Hours*
Abstract: Droplet microfluidics, in which nanoliter- to picoliter-sized drops are used to encapsulate and compartmentalize molecules or cells, has enabled a wide range of biochemical applications. Examples include digital PCR, directed evolution of enzymes and screening of the efficacy of antibiotics. This talk will overview the techniques for droplet generation, manipulation and interrogation, as well as recent examples of applications.
