By reducing the operational dimensions of a conventional macro-fluidic-based system down to the micron scale, one can not only reduce the sample volume, but also access a range of unique characteristics, which are not achievable in conventional macro-scale systems. This chapter will discuss the unique properties of miniaturised systems based on micro-fluidic and Lab-on-a-Chip technology and consider how these may influence the overall performance associated with chemical and biological processing. Some consideration will also be given to the selection of materials and/or surface modifications that will be proactive in exploiting the high surface area and thermal and mass transfer properties, to enhance process performance.
