A Lab-on-a-chip With Moveable Channels

March 19, 2010

virtual electrowetting channels Microfluidic devices typically depend upon electrokinetic or traditional pressure methods to move microscopic amounts of fluid around a fixed microchip. Just published as the cover story in Lab on a Chip, in "Virtual Electrowetting Channels: Electronic Liquid Transport with Continuous Channel Functionality," engineering researchers at the University of Cincinnati have created a paradigm shift--and moved some tiny channels in the process.
