Sound Waves Transport Droplets For Rewritable Lab-on-a-chip Devices

Pollyanna Sidell - Associated Environmental Systems

sound-495859_1280-1Engineers at Duke University have demonstrated a versatile microfluidic lab-on-a-chip that uses sound waves to create tunnels in oil to digitally manipulate and transport droplets. The technology could form the basis of a small-scale, programmable, rewritable biomedical chip that is completely reusable for disparate purposes from on-site diagnostics to laboratory-based research.
