Abstract

This paper presents an integrated X-ray compatible microfluidic platform for bio/molecular analysis and in-situ crystallisation studies at synchrotron light sources. The use of the integrated microfluidics presented in this paper enables higher quality data sets of any time-dependent reactions to be observed using synchrotron radiation. This has significant implications in a variety of research fields such as synthesis of nanoparticles, protein structure determination and formation of geological sediments and biomineralisation.
