A model for quantifying the dispersion of DNA during electrophoresis in a microfluidic array of posts was analyzed. The model was based on Monte Carlo method for simulating the dynamics of DNA motion and dispersion through the array. The trapping time, collision probability and post geometry were some of the parameters considered for the analytical model. The semiphenomenological model also aided in analysis of the separation process.
