The recent trend for miniaturization of a verity of functions from chemical and biological assays, water and air quality sensors, drug discovery, and production of functional materials has been led by various microfluidic systems and designs. Digital microfluidics (DMF) is a droplet-based microfluidic system with a planar geometry.
This course allows students with different backgrounds ranging from biology, chemistry, mechanical, and electrical engineering to learn the fundamental of DMF. The course will have two components: (1) lectures, and (2) experiential learning (hands-on training). The lectures will cover three topics: (i) fundamentals of drop manipulation, (ii) Design of DMF systems, and (iii) applications.
- Introduction to the course and its goal; various types of microfluidic systems and their applications, a discussion of the state of digital microfluidics in today’s research and technology landscape.
- Introduction to simulation tools such as Surface Evolver.
- Hands-on design of frugal DMF based on paper (circuit design for intake, delivery, mixing and delivery to the analysis point).
Who can Attend?
The course is addressed to scientists, professionals, company engineers, R&D managers and graduate students in the fields of Engineering, Chemistry, Biology, Medicine, Applied and Fundamental Sciences.
