BioMEMS (biological microelectromechanical systems) and Lab-on-a-chip devices are becoming prominent systems for medical diagnostics as well as excellent platforms for biological testing. It is important to understand the effects surface tension has on these devices as they become smaller and surface tension forces dominate. Work towards the Grand Challenge of Engineering the Tools of Scientific Discovery using BioMEMS and Lab-on-a-chip devices requires an understanding of surface tension.
