  • Abstract : We present a reduced ODE model, derived from a continuum framework, for fluid flow and solute transport in a novel microfluidic system with applications for drug discovery. While the flow is gravity-driven, our analysis highlights the importance of capillary effects, exploring how contact angle hysteresis and meniscus shape modify the flow. We show how our model can be used to identify optimal parameter regimes for advective solute transport, which informs device operation and design.
