Seminar Active control in microfluidic systems
Jaap den Toonder

Details:

Microfluidic devices can be used for many applications, one of the most important one being medical diagnostics. These devices need to perform complex tasks of (bio-)fluid manipulation and detection. Active components integrated in these devices open new possibilities of controlling these tasks. I will show examples of micro-actuators (actuated magnetically or electrostatically), responsive surfaces (actuated by light or heat), and magnetic micro-beads, integrated in microfluidic devices. Examples will be shown of how these are used to propel or mix fluids, enhance biochemical reactions, characterize properties of single biological cells, and grow and characterize organotypic tissues in microchips.
