On the first hand the realization of new kind of fluidic devices allowing the study of fluid and ion transport at the nanoscale: these new experimental devices will be obtained by using nanostructures like building blocks as already shown by realising a fluidics set-up based on transmembrane nanotubes; in parallel a dedicated plateform for the characterization of fluid transport will be developed based on electrokinetics
and optical detection set-ups.

Direct current electrokinetics
has a long history of development, being investigated and applied extensively .
The emphasis is on simulating direct-current electrokinetic
phenomena such as electroosmosis, electrophoresis, dielectrophoresis, and induced-charge electrokinetics
; these phenomena have been widely used to manipulate fluids and particles in microfluidic and nanofluidic devices for various applications.
These methods include precipitation, electroplating, chemical coagulation, ion- exchange, membrane separation, and electrokinetics
Due to their small size, the lab-on-chip devices offer precise fluidic transportation via the use of electrokinetics
or micro-pumping, efficient separation of the liquid samples and precision in the measurement of samples.
Due to their small size and the tiny fluidic volumes that they handle, the lab-on-chip devices offer: (a) precise microfluidic transportation via the use of electrokinetics
or micropumping, (b) efficient separation of biochemical species, (c) precise measurements, (d) efficient control of the concentration of the reactants, and (e) fast and reliable synthesis of monodisperse bioproducts.
