Abstract: The manipulation of small amounts of fluids in the order of nano and pico liters has emerged as a new scientific field of microfluidics. This field has potentially a huge im-pact on chemical synthesis, biological analysis, optics and information technology. At the beginning, all microftuidic devices were designed to manipulate continuous flow, while re-cently there has been a shift towards working with discreet droplets. Droplet manipulation allows the use of non mechanical methods for actuation and in some cases elimination of micro and nanochannels in the chips. The field is new and therefore still needs improve-ments in the actuation schemes. The purpose of this research is using magnetic force for active control and manipulation of droplets.
