Introduction to Mixing and Droplet Production in Microfluidics
Application Note Mar 06, 2015
This application note introduces researchers to fundamental fluid operations in microfluidics. It also helps users decide how to design their systems. Most often systems are comprised of a microfabricated device (glass, PDMS, polymer), connectors, interfaces, pumps, sensors, control software and fluid accessories.
The application note is written in a simple, direct way that emphasizes concepts and understanding, rather than technical detail. It aims at providing the reader with the concepts, methods and data they need to grasp situations which typically arise in microfluidic systems.
