We control and observe femtoliter volume reactions within aqueous nanodroplets. Chemical reagents sequestered in the nanodroplets mix when the nanodroplets are fused via optical manipulation. The subsequent reaction is probed by means of fluorescence excitation. (Optical Trapping Applications, 2009).
