The demand for precise and accurate medical instruments that are also cost-effective drove the design towards the concept of Lab-on-a-Chip. These miniature systems are usually built on a single die and are able to perform multiple test through the manipulation of minimum amounts of analytes and markers. Such chips have significantly changed the way the bio-tests are carried out. However, significant challenges associated with such tests are still to be addressed. The phenomena occurring in the capillary bridges drew the attention of the scientific community from the beginning of the nineteenth century and experiments were extensively carried out.
