Digital microfluidics, by the electrowetting-on-dielectric (EWOD), is a promising way to manipulate biological targets like DNA, proteins, or cells in very small liquid volumes. Conventionally, digital microfluidic operations are performed on a two-dimensional electrode array. This research expands the two-dimensional conventional digital microfluidic architecture into a three-dimensional architecture. The concept relies on the possibility that back and forth motions between open and covered… CONTINUE READING
