Flow control using audio tones in resonant microfluidic networks: towards cell-phone controlled lab-on-a-chip devices.

Abstract

Fluid control remains a challenge in development of portable lab-on-a-chip devices. Here, we show that microfluidic networks driven by single-frequency audio tones create resonant oscillating flow that is predicted by equivalent electrical circuit models. We fabricated microfluidic devices with fluidic resistors (R), inductors (L), and capacitors (C) to… (More)
