8 pagesDate: December 7, 2023


The integration of nanostructured surfaces within microfluidic systems has opened promising avenues for enhancing biomolecule manipulation efficiency. This study explores the influence of nanostructures on microfluidic transport phenomena, elucidating their role in improving biomolecule manipulation. By leveraging engineered surface topographies at the nanoscale, this research investigates the alterations in fluid flow, mass transport, and molecular interactions within microfluidic environments. Through a comprehensive analysis of surface patterning techniques and their impact on biomolecule manipulation, this study aims to elucidate the mechanisms underlying enhanced transport properties. Nanostructured surfaces offer unique advantages by modulating surface energy, promoting specific molecule-surface interactions, and controlling fluid flow behavior at reduced scales. These advancements hold significant promise for various applications such as biomolecular separation, sensing, and diagnostic assays. Experimental investigations coupled with computational modeling techniques provide insights into the intricate interplay between nanostructured surfaces and microfluidic transport, thereby paving the way for the design and development of highly efficient biomolecule manipulation platforms. The findings presented in this study contribute to the fundamental understanding of nano-microfluidic interactions and hold immense potential in advancing biomedical research, clinical diagnostics, and drug discovery technologies.
