Abstract: As a membrane-based sampling technique microdialysis can be quantified by the relative recovery and the time-to-reach-the-steady-state in sampling. In this paper dimensional analysis is applied to show that the performance can be collectively determined by three dimensionless numbers, the Péclet and Reynolds numbers of the perfusion flow and the membrane-to-channel area ratio.
