Thermotaxis and chemotaxis are defined as the tendency of cells and microorganisms under thermal and chemical gradients to migrate toward favorable physical situations and avoid damage and death. Advances in microfluidics have enhanced the precision of controlling and capturing microscale samples, and bridged the gap between in-vitro and in-situ assays, specifically in taxis experiments. Thermo- and chemotaxis inspired the design and development of novel microfluidic systems and devices based on thermocapillary and chemocapillary flow control. View this paper
