Cell-free protein synthesis can enable the combinatorial screening of many different components and concentrations. However, manual pipetting methods are unfit to handle many cell-free reactions. Here, we describe a microfluidic method that can generate hundreds of unique submicroliter scale reactions. The method is coupled with a high yield cell-free system that can be applied for broad protein screening assays.
