Versatile microfluidic platform for protocols on a chip via capacitive sensing controlled sample dispendsing and surface acoustic wave (SAW) driven mixing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperOther

Abstract

We developed a versatile microfluidic platform for performing protocols on a chip. Key features includes a chamber with reaction volume flexibility integrated with a capacitive sensor for real time reagent level metering, single layer valves at the entrance of reaction chamber for customized fluid dispensing and surface acoustic wave (SAW) excitation at head of the chamber for rapid mixing. These features enable various bio/chemical reactions to be performed, offering the capability of protocol development directly on chip.
