    Wicking Plays a Key Role in Diagnostics and Healthcare

    Wicking, or capillarity is the ability of liquids to flow through very narrow openings. The flow motion occurs without the assistance of external forces, and is generally against gravity. If the diameter of the opening is extremely small, the surface tension of the opening’s wall, and the adhesive forces between the liquid and the wall are sufficient enough to drive . . .
