The use of ferrofluids is now foreseen to be important for microfluidic systems and biotechnological microsystems as microvalves, micropumps or for the control and synchronization of the flow. The advantage lies in the possibility of monitoring and controlling the flow inside the biochip by micromagnets or micro-electromagnets located outside the… CONTINUE READING
