Mashaghi Tabari, S., Verpoorte, E. M. J. & van Oijen, A. M., 11-Dec-2014, Patent No. WO2014196856, Priority date 5-Jun-2013

Research output: PatentProfessional

The invention relates to methods and means for performing microdroplet-based reactions, and in particular to droplet based microfluidics. Provided is a method for performing a microdroplet-based reaction comprising the steps of : (i) providing a carrier fluid and a plurality of droplets, the droplets containing reactants and being immiscible with and surrounded by the carrier fluid, and (ii) introducing into the carrier fluid a first agent that is (a) soluble in both the carrier fluid and the droplets and (b) capable of modulating at least one reaction inside the droplets. Also provided is a microfluidic device designed for performing a method of the invention.
