Abstract

We developed velocity gap theory for enhancing separation resolutions. The theory is based on the discovery that velocity gap (VG) effect could enlarge the distance between two moving objects. DNA separation confirmed its practical feasibility by achieving 2-5 times higher resolution on a microchip. Our results indicate that VG effect could enlarge the distance between two moving objects and may potentially be utilized to ameliorate separation efficiency.
