Paper Abstract

Micronics has developed a wide variety of microfluidic devices and integrated systems for clinical diagnostics and life sciences applications. They fall into two general classes: machine-controlled disposable cartridges, and passive self-contained disposable cards. They include particle separators, flow cytometers, valves, detection channels, mixers, and diluters. Current applications for these devices include a hematology analyzer, stand-alone blood plasma separators, and a variety of chemical and biological assays. In this paper, we will focus on microfluidic structures for chemical and cellular analysis. Experimental data as well as the results of fluid modeling will be shown.
