Abstract

A method for changing the solution concentration of microreactors employing picoliter-sized water-in-oil microdroplets based on electrofusion and hydrodynamic fission of microdroplets in a microfluidic channel is described. Carrier droplets change the concentration of reactor droplets without changing the reactor droplet volume. This system realizes chemical experiments requiring solution concentration change in microdroplets.
