Abstract

Microfluidic platforms offer exquisite capabilities in controlling mass transport for biological studies. In this review, we focus on recent developments in manipulating chemical concentrations at the microscale. Some techniques prevent or accelerate mixing, whereas others shape the concentration gradients of chemical and biological molecules. We also highlight several in vitro biological studies in the areas of organ engineering, cancer, and blood coagulation that have benefited from accurate control of mass transfer.
