work

(Science: chemistry) energy transferred by mechanical means, force acting over a distance. For chemical systems the sign for work is positive, if work is done on the system and negative, if work is done by the system. An example is the expansion of a gas against the external, atmospheric pressure. In this case work is negative, because it is done by the gas which represents the system.

Questions about DNA dialysis

... be much loss, I'd think, except the bit of volume stuck in the gizmo if you have small volumes, and perhaps a tad stuck in the pores.
