Abstract:

The Microfluidic Operations and Network Architecture Characterizations MONARCH research project focused on identifying the general biomedical application set and the specific applications to use a MEMS based reconfigurable microfluidic architecture. The research investigated multiple architectural design focused primarily on continuous flow fluidic systems. The research exploited the significant advantages of droplet-flow technology and how biomedical application research could be enhanced. The research addressed the development of a reconfigurable bio-molecular detection microsystem architecture composed of an array of droplet-actuation and detection sites in a decision tree with reconfigurable pipelines for molecular recognition using parallel, high-speed droplet transport.
