Abstract

We report for the first time a gravity-driven microfluidic siphon concept, able to deliver a sequence of reagent and wash steps as a multi-step 'dipstick' solely by hydrostatic pressure, through a simple strip of microporous or microbored material such as a microcapillary or porous membrane, providing a set of distinctive features suitable for high-performance multiplexed power-free bioassays.
