Reliable addition of reagents into microfluidic droplets
This article reports a design that reliably adds reagents into droplets by exploiting the physics of fluid flow at a T-junction in the microchannel. An expanded section right after the T-junction enhances merging of a ...
A simple method for evaluating and predicting chaotic advection in microfluidic slugs
A simple method for evaluating chaotic advection in slug micromixing is reported in this paper. We consider a slug moving in a slit microchannel (w⪢h) and flow field in a plane far from the boundary walls is modelled as a ...
Formation and manipulation of ferrofluid droplets at a microfluidic T-junction
This paper reports the formation and manipulation of ferrofluid droplets at a microfluidic T-junction in the presence of a permanent magnetic field. A small circular permanent magnet with a diameter of 3 mm is used to ...
