Abstract A microfluidic device made of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) addresses key limitations in single-molecule fluorescence experiments by providing high dye photostability and low sample sticking. Photobleaching is dramatically reduced by deoxygenation via gas diffusion through porous channel walls. Rapid buffer exchange in a laminar sheath flow followed by optical interrogation minimizes surface−sample contacts and allows the in situ addition and combination of other reagents.
