Abstract: front page image
(EN)A modular microfluidic system including a plurality of discrete microfluidic modules and at least one microfluidic coupling device for communicating fluid between the modules is described. The microfluidic modules and coupling devices may be constructed according to various techniques. Each coupling device is fabricated from multiple layers and includes a fluidic inlet port, a fluidic outlet port, and at least one sandwiched stencil layer having a microfluidic channel formed therein. Also described are integrated microfluidic systems capable of performing various functions.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système microfluidique modulaire comprenant une pluralité de modules microfluidiques discrets et au moins un dispositif connecteur microfluidique permettant de faire communiquer le fluide entre les différents modules. Ces modules microfluidiques et dispositifs connecteurs peuvent être construits par diverses techniques. Chaque dispositif connecteur est constitué d'une pluralité de couches et comporte un point d'entrée de fluide, un point de sortie de fluide et au moins une couche intercalée découpée dans laquelle sont formés des canaux microfluidiques. L'invention concerne également des systèmes microfluidiques intégrés capables de remplir diverses fonctions.
