06344326 is referenced by 104 patents and cites 20 patents.

Integrated microfluidic devices comprising at least an enrichment channel (

10

) and a main electrophoretic flowpath (

12

) are provided. In the subject integrated devices, the enrichment channel and the main electrophoretic flowpath are positioned so that waste fluid flows away from said main electrophoretic flowpath through a discharge outlet (

6

). The subject devices find use in a variety of electrophoretic applications, including clinical assays, high throughput screening for genomics and pharmaceutical applications, point-or-care in vitro diagnostics, molecular genetic analysis and nucleic acid diagnostics, cell separations, and bioresearch generally.
