A reference to osmosis, particularly to osmotic pressure.
Word Entries containing the term:
electroosmotic driver, electro-osmotic driver; micropump
1. A solution in which voltage is converted into fluid pressure by the streaming of the potential effect.
2. A type of solion for converting voltage into fluid pressure, which uses depolarizing electrodes sealed in an electrolyte and which operates through the streaming potential effect.
A solion is an electrochemical device in which amplification is obtained by controlling and monitoring a reversible electrochemical reaction or a low-frequency amplifying device that operates by controlling the flow of ions in a solution; some types, such as, the micropump, accomplish this by means of an electro-osmotic pressure.
1. Containing a lower concentration of osmotically active components than a standard solution.
2. Having an osmolality less than another fluid, ordinarily assumed to be plasma or extracellular fluid
