Reactant mixing is implemented in structures with characteristic length scales of nanometers (see picture). Mixing occurs within micron distances rather than the centimeters that are often needed for laminar microflows. The application of the nanocapillary mixer to detect Ca2+ ions demonstrates its potential use in sensors.
