Microfluidic Lab-on-a-Chip for Chemical and Biological Analysis and Discovery

The microfluidic lab-on-a-chip permits scientists to behavior chemical and biochemical research in a miniaturized structure so small that houses and results are effectively stronger, and methods seamlessly built-in. This microscale virtue interprets into higher sensitivity, extra exact effects, and higher details.

His fascination with science included an intense interest in meteorology (he kept careful daily weather records for 46 years), which led to an interest in the gases of the air and their ultimate components, atoms. Dalton is best known for his atomic theory, in which he postulated that the fundamental differences among atoms are their masses. He was the first to prepare a table of relative atomic weights. Dalton was a humble man with several apparent handicaps: He was poor; he was not articulate; he was not a skilled experimentalist; and he was color-blind, a terrible problem for a chemist.

Scanning electron microscope images of the adhesive show that it has an irregular surface, a little like the surface of a gravel road. In contrast, the adhesive on cellophane tape looks smooth and uniform, like a superhighway. The bumpy surface of Silver’s adhesive caused it to be sticky but not so sticky as to produce permanent adhesion because the number of contact points between the binding surfaces was limited. When he invented this adhesive, Silver had no specific ideas for its use, so he spread the word of his discovery to his fellow employees at 3M to see if anyone had an application for it.

This involves gathering new information that enables a scientist to decide whether the hypothesis is correct—that is, whether it is supported by the new information learned from the experiment. Experiments always produce new observations, and this brings the process back to the beginning again. To understand a given phenomenon, these steps are repeated many times, gradually accumulating the knowledge necessary to provide a possible explanation of the phenomenon. As scientists observe nature, they often see that the same observation applies to many different systems.
