    • ‘The Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering reports that professors from the University of Alberta have found a way to produce electricity with electrokinetic energy generated from water.’
    • ‘The fluid is moved through the channels by means of the electrokinetic effect created by an applied electric field.’
    • ‘Sensitivity can be readily increased by derivatizing with a UV-absorbing or fluorescent species and separation by micellar electrokinetic capillary chromatography.’
    • ‘Studies drawing on both electrokinetic phenomena and slip boundary conditions are offering in-depth understanding of microfluid flow in restricted microchannels.’
    • ‘The pump is electrokinetic, completely silent, and has no moving parts.’
