In the field of BioMEMS, electroosmosis phenomena have always been an integral part of its research due to its abundant applications. For instance, electroosmosis has been utilized as a powerful pumping means to precisely transport and manipulate liquid samples in microfluidic devices used for chemical analyses and biomedical diagnoses. Compared with conventional mechanical pumping modes, the electroosmosis-based pumping has numerous advantages including ease of fabrication and control, no movable mechanical parts, and high repeatability and reliability.
