The development of a microchannel for fluid-mixing applications comes from the recent interest in microfluidic device applications in biology. The basic idea of microfluidics is to shrink the physical dimensions of most commonly used processors. The lab on a chip is one long-term goal in microfluidics research. In addition, the application of microfluidic technology in clinical diagnostics offers significant cost advantages in terms of reagents, device fabrication, and usage.
