Microfluidic groups many branches of Physics ranging from Fluid Dynamics to Electronics and closely linked with Biology Sciences. Its interdisciplinary character is a distinctive feature, as the times we are living today. In the last ten years, along with the development of biotechnology, microelectronics, materials science and many others, the use of microfluidic devices has increased remarkably. Few scientists in Cuba have worked in topics related with Microfluidics; nevertheless, there is no reference in which this activity has been pointed out explicitly. This article aims to introduce some terms and divulge basic aspects of Microfluidics; besides this, another article will be published with most applications of Microfluidics that could be of interest for Cuba.
