Aquifer-on-a-chip paper selected for top 10% collection

Congratulations to David Sinton and his colleagues, Myeongsub Kim and Andrew Sell, for the selection of their manuscript, Aquifer-on-a-Chip: Understanding pore-scale salt precipitation dynamics during CO2 sequestration, for inclusion in the Lab on a Chip Top 10% web collection by the editors of the journal Lab on a Chip. Prof. Sinton, University of Toronto, is principal investigator on the project A pore scale microlab to perform fundamental laboratory-based studies of CO2 transport and reactivity in reservoirs.

Lab on a Chip Top 10%  papers are selected from all of the journal’s high quality papers, to be of exceptional significance for the miniaturisation community. Papers in this category will have received excellent reports during peer review, and demonstrate a breakthrough in device technology, methodology or demonstrate important new results for chemistry, physics, biology or bioengineering enabled by miniaturisation.

Sinton’s paper has also been highlighted on the LOC blog at

Richard Adamson, CMC Managing Director, notes that Sinton’s work is showing potential in multiple areas.

“The lab on a chip work is really important for gaining insights into the problem of salt deposition in carbon sequestration sites. But to me what’s really exciting, is that they’ve taken this work and they are now finding new possibilities for it.”

Keep in touch!
