Title (EN) A MICROFLUIDIC SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ MICROFLUIDIQUES
Abstract:
(EN) A microfluidic system comprises a detachable microfluidic device comprising a rigid layer, an elastic layer and at least one fluid chamber or channel between the rigid layer and the elastic layer; and a control platform comprising means for deforming the elastic layer thereby to manipulate fluid in the at least one fluid chamber or channel.
(FR) Système microfluidique, comprenant un dispositif microfluidique détachable constitué d'une couche rigide, d'une couche élastique et d'au moins une chambre ou un canal de fluide entre la couche rigide et la couche élastique; et une plate-forme de commande comprenant des moyens pour déformer la couche élastique afin de manipuler ainsi le fluide dans ladite chambre ou ledit canal de fluide.
