[[Image:Tsensor.jpg|150px|right|thumbnail|'''Figure 2''' Diffusion dominated mixing that occurs in a T-sensor allows for mixing to occur in such a way that differential analysis is possible]]
 
Low length and velocity scales in microfluidic setups- > Low Reynolds number. This also implies lower convective forces when compared to larger devices. As such, Pe in a microfluidic device is usually lower than 1 and as such, implying that these regimes are diffusion dominant[Squires and Quake]
