The behaviour of fluids at the micro scale can differ significantly from macro fluidic behaviour, and this can be exploited in micro fluidic systems to enable, for example, high dpi printing systems ejecting picolitre volumes of ink, or, equally, high-throughput screening at the nanolitre volume level using arrayed systems.
