UNAM’s real-time droplet monitoring system iDM helps to synthesize monodisperse micro/nanoparticles

UNAM’s real-time droplet monitoring system iDM helps to synthesize monodisperse micro/nanoparticles

Droplet-based systems have proven themselves as a major sub-category of microfluidics thanks to their ability to encapsulate the fluid-of-interest into segmented droplets in a carrying fluid. Microdroplet systems can be used in a vast range of applications from drug delivery and discovery to cellular studies, material synthesis, and reaction kinetics. An important question left open [...]
