This chapter describes how to extend what shown for macroscopic flows to flows in microchannels. It begins with the description of the governing equations for ionic microfluids. It then analyzes the problem of stacking in electrophoresis. It shows how infinitesimal quantities can be extracted from a sample for transport in microchannels for separation. The problem of design of such channel is discussed and it is shown how reduced-order models can be used for the flow. The chapter ends with the design of a protein folding mixing device.

Keywords:   electrophoresis, microchannels, stacking, ionic microfluids, protein folding
