Modeling and optimization of planar microcoils
Magnetic actuation has emerged as a useful tool for manipulating particles, droplets and biological samples in microfluidics. A planar coil is one of the suitable candidates for magnetic actuation and has the potential to ...
Programmable two-dimensional actuation of ferrofluid droplet using planar microcoils
This paper reports the concept and the device for two-dimensional magnetic actuation of a ferrofluid droplet. Four planar microcoils were etched on one side of a printed circuit board (PCB). The magnetic field was digitally ...
One-dimensional actuation of a ferrofluid droplet by planar microcoils
This paper discusses the simulation of a device for actuation of a ferrofluid droplet using planar microcoils. The device with two pairs of planar microcoils was designed and fabricated on a double-sided printed circuit ...
Microfluidic platform for controlling the differentiation of embryoid bodies
Embryonic stem (ES) cells are pluripotent cells, which can differentiate into any cell type. This cell type has often been implicated as an eminent source of renewable cells for tissue regeneration and cellular replacement ...
Kinematics and deformation of ferrofluid droplets under magnetic actuation
This paper reports the experimental results on kinematics and deformation of ferrofluid droplets driven by planar coils. Ferrofluid droplets act as liquid magnets, which can be controlled and manipulated by an external ...
