Microfluidics provide tantalizing opportunities for miniaturizing biological assays with the attendant benefits of preserving samples and reagents, parallelization, faster time to results, and making bioanalytical devices portable/pervasive. I will give an overview of our activities on experimental biosciences at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory, where we try to develop powerful, miniaturized bioanalytical systems using microcontact printing and capillary-based microfluidics. I will then present a new class of microfluidics, called microfluidic probes (MFP), which can be used in a non-contact mode to pattern biomolecules and/or localize biological assays over surfaces.
