AbstractMicrofluidic droplets are a powerful tool for screening large populations of cells, molecules, and biochemical reactions. Droplet systems are able to encapsulate, incubate, screen, and sort millions of samples, providing access to large number statistics that make searching for rare events feasible. Initial development of the microfluidic devices and methods has attracted applications in biology, biochemistry, and material science, but the set of tools remains incomplete. Efforts are required to develop micro-scale droplet analogs for all bulk-scale bench top procedures and instruments. The droplet analogs must be versatile, robust, and process samples rapidly.
