Digital Microfluidics

April 30, 2017

Abstract:

A digital assay is one in which the sample is partitioned into many small containers such that each partition contains a discrete number of biological entities (0, 1, 2, 3, …). A powerful technique in the biologist’s toolkit, digital assays bring a new level o...

Abstract:

The continuous separation of different types of droplets from a mixture is important in industrial and research applications. Currently researches for droplet separation focus on homogeneous emulsion droplets, and there is no study on the separation of heterog...

Abstract:

While methods for dynamic tuning of surface wettability to manipulate water droplets have been widely explored for many applications including digital microfluidics, those based on dynamically changeable surface morphology have remained challenging to achieve....

Abstract:

The poor control and regulation of droplets limit the applications of negative-pressure-driven-droplet-generator (NPDDG). Here, we present a simple method to control droplet size in NPDDG via varying the oil viscosity. Depending on the infinite inter-solubilit...

Abstract:

We present a multi-sensor chip comprising an array of whispering-gallery mode (WGM) micro-goblet lasers integrated into a digital microfluidic (DMF) system. In contrast to earlier demonstrations, the lasers are fabricated from dye-doped poly-methyl methacrylat...

Abstract:

Despite advances in breast cancer prevention and treatment, variability in patient-response has revealed the need for a more “personalized” approach to medicine, in which treatments are tailored to each patient's biology. Motivated by this idea, we introduce a...

Abstract:

The rapid emergence of antimicrobial resistant bacteria requires the development of new diagnostic tests. Nucleic acid-based assays determine antimicrobial susceptibility by detecting genes that encode for the resistance. In this study, we demonstrate rapid an...

Abstract:

Microfluidics found its place in point of care diagnostics. Microfluidic devices on paper substrate are proposed on both channel-based and digital microfluidics (DMF). But fluid flow controlling on microfluidics paper-based analytical devices (µPADs) and post-...

Abstract:

Motivated by recent experiments, deformation and relaxation of a droplet flowing through a narrow channel opening to a planar sudden expansion are studied. Using the boundary element method (BEM), we numerically solve the Darcy equation in the two-dimensional...

Abstract:

A digital microfluidic biochip (DMFB) is an attractive technology platform for automating laboratory procedures in biochemistry. In recent years, DMFBs based on a microelectrode-dot-array (MEDA) architecture have been demonstrated. However, due to the inherent...

Abstract:

Microfluidic applications demand accurate control and measurement of small fluid flows and volumes, and the majority of approaches found in the literature involve materials and fabrication methods not suitable for a monolithic integration of different microcom...

Abstract:

In this work, we proposed a novel design of microfluidic mixer utilizing the amplified Marangoni chaotic advection induced by AC continuous electrowetting of a metal droplet situated in electrolyte solution, due to the linear and quadratic voltage-dependence o...

Abstract:

Portable microfluidic devices are promising for point-of-care (POC) diagnosis and bio- and environmental surveillance in resource-constrained or non-laboratory environments. Lateral-flow devices, some built off paper or strings, have been widely developed but...

March 12, 2017

Abstract:

Superrepellency is an extreme situation where liquids stay at the tops of rough surfaces, in the so-called Cassie state. Owing to the dramatic reduction of solid/liquid contact, such states lead to many applications, such as antifouling, droplet manipulation,...
