Paper Abstract

The research work reported in this paper focuses on developing an electrochemical micropump and a DNA mixing and analysis system using the electrochemical pumps for actuation. The micropum consists of two swing-door check valves and an electrochemical pumping chamber. In the prototype system, two micropumps were used to deliver the reagents and DNA samples respectively. The SU-8 based UV-lithography process was used to fabricate the system on a glass substrate.
