Title: Vesicle-based method and apparatus for collecting, manipulating, and chemically processing trace macromolecular species

Abstract

Disclosed is an apparatus and method for inserting one or several chemical or biological species into phospholipid containers that are controlled within a microfluidic network, wherein individual containers are tracked and manipulated by electric fields and wherein the contained species may be chemically processed.
