Picoliter: enabling precise transfer of nanoliter and picoliter volumes
Publication: Drug Discovery Today 7 S32-S34, 2002 doi: 10.1016/S1359-6446(02)02176-1
Picoliter has a technology for the precise transfer of picoliter and nanoliter volumes of liquid without contact between the device and the fluids being transferred. This is accomplished using focussed acoustic energy that causes droplets to be ejected from a liquid surface. Applications include liquid transfer devices, particle manufacturing, and the production of arrays with probes of any length.
