• Ferrowax microvalves for fully automated serial dilution on centrifugal microfluidic platforms

    22 days ago - By Wiley

    A new centrifugal microfluidic system capable of accomplishing fully automated serial dilutions, by utilizing ferrowax microvalves. Six consecutive two-fold and 10-fold dilutions were successfully achieved, yielding excellent accuracy in a wide dynamic range up to six orders of magnitude. The overall serial dilution process, including the diluent addition, mixing, and product transfer steps, was completed very rapidly within 5 min.
    Abstract
    We herein describe a centrifugal microfluidic system to accomplish a fully automated serial dilution. The liquid flow on the disc was regulated by...
