Wireless flow-control method for centrifugal microfluidic application


This project demonstrates the flow controlled functionality using RF wireless mechanism for lab on chip (LOC) device. This approach aims to control the flow switching sequence for centrifugal microfluidic application during spinning process, where a conventional valving principle is hardly to be implemented. In addition, the heat induced from the RF heating can be utilised as an actuation mechanism to eject a controlled amount of dosage to the targeted area, which further eliminates the requirement of batteries and active circuitry in micropump application.
