Paper Abstract

Hydrophobic microfluidics is a method for controlling fluid flow in microfluidic systems using restrictions that act as passive valves. Many different fluid processing components can be designed, such as mixers, sample dividers, sample consolidators, and others, all in a passive and reliable manner. This method of fluid control is excellent for highly parallel sample analysis, such as in DNA processing and immuno-diagnostics.
