Micro check valves for integration into polymeric microfluidic devices
In this paper we describe the design, simulation, fabrication and characterization of micro check valves suitable for integration into polymeric microfluidic devices such as micropumps or test cartridges for biomedical ...
Convective-diffusive transport in parallel lamination micromixers
Effective mixing and controllable concentration gradient are important in microfluidic applications. From the scaling law, decreasing the mixing length can shorten the mixing time and enhance the mixing quality. The small ...
A polymeric piezoelectric micropump based on lamination technology
This paper presents the first micropumps assembled using polymeric lamination technology. Each pump consists of two 100 ?m thick, 10 mm diameter SU-8 discs; two 1.5 mm thick, 15 mm diameter polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) ...
A polymeric microgripper with integrated thermal actuators
This paper describes the design, simulation, fabrication and characterization of a polymeric microgripper with integrated thermal actuators. The microgripper was fabricated by a polymeric surface micromachining process, ...
Nonlinear diffusive mixing in microchannels : theory and experiments
Effective mixing is an important task in microfluidics for chemical and biochemical applications. Due to the small size and consequently the low Reynolds number, mixing in microchannels relies on diffusive transport. This ...
Hydrodynamic focusing in microchannels under consideration of diffusive dispersion : theories and experiments
This paper investigates hydrodynamic focusing inside a microchannel. Hydrodynamic focusing has a number of applications in microfluidics such as micromixer, microcytometer, fluidic switch, and cell infection. In contrast ...
