A simple droplet merger design for controlled reaction volumes
(Springer Nature, 2017-04-01)
Droplet microfluidics has been proven to be a viable platform for a variety of reactions by using uniform droplets well encapsulated by an immiscible carrier medium as reaction vesicles. Merging as one of the most basic ...
A microfluidic chip integrated with droplet generation, pairing, trapping, merging, mixing and releasing
(Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2017-03-16)
Developing a microfluidic chip with multiple functions is highly demanded for practical applications, such as chemical analysis, diagnostics, particles synthesis and drug screening. This work demonstrates a microfluidic ...
On nonequilibrium shrinkage of supercritical CO2 droplets in a water-carrier microflow
(AIP Publishing, 2018-07-16)
We report an experimental study on the hydrodynamic shrinkage of supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO(2)) microdroplets during a nonequilibrium process. After scCO(2 )microdroplets are generated by water shearing upon a ...
Effective Thermo-Capillary Mixing in Droplet Microfluidics Integrated with a Microwave Heater
(American Chemical Society (ACS), 2017-02-07)
In this study, we present a microwave-based microfluidic mixer that allows rapid mixing within individual droplets efficiently. The designed microwave mixer is a coplanar design with a small footprint, which is fabricated ...
Simulation before fabrication: a case study on the utilization of simulators for the design of droplet microfluidic networks
(Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2018-10-10)
The functional performance of passively operated droplet microfluidics is sensitive with respect to the dimensions of the channel network, the fabrication precision as well as the applied pressure because the entire network ...
