Methods and systems of performing multiple reactions in a high throughput format by utilizing interfacial mixing of adjacently positioned reagent slugs in a fluid conduit. Preferred applications of the methods and systems are in performing biochemical analyses, including genotyping experiments for multiple different loci on multiple different patient samples. Microfluidic systems are provided that increase throughput, automation and integration of the overall reactions to be carried out.
