Reprogrammable microfluidic chips

A microfluidic chip with channels that can be programmed then reset and reconfigured has been developed by scientists from CEA-LETI and LIMMS. The chip developed by PhD student Raphaёl Renaudot from CEA-Leti and LIMMS and coworkers consists of a bottom support, which contains an array of electrodes, and a top plate made of glass, with paraffin wax and distilled water sandwiched in between. At 45 °C, the paraffin wax is liquid. By selectively switching on particular electrodes, ...
