Title: APPARATUS COMPRISING AN ARRAY OF SENSOR WELLS AND AN ARRAY OF FLOW CONTROL WELLS FOR IMPROVING THE WETTABILITY AND DISTRIBUTION OF FLUIDS APPLIED TO THE SURFACE OF THE BODY OF THE APPARATUS AND METHOD OF FORMING AN ARRAY OF LAYERS OF AMPHIPHILIC MOLECULES
Abstract:
An apparatus for supporting an array of layers of amphiphilic molecules, the apparatus comprising: a body (11), formed in a surface of the body, an array of sensor wells (10) capable of supporting a layer of amphiphilic molecules (30) across the sensor wells, the sensor wells each containing an electrode (12) for connection to an electrical circuit, and formed in the surface of the body between the sensor wells, flow control wells capable of smoothing the flow of a fluid across the surface.
