Title (EN) VARIABLE VOLUME MIXING AND AUTOMATIC FLUID MANAGEMENT FOR PROGRAMMABLE MICROFLUIDICS
(FR) MÉLANGE À VOLUME VARIABLE ET GESTION AUTOMATIQUE DE FLUIDE POUR AGENCEMENT MICROFLUIDIQUE PROGRAMMABLE
Abstract:
(EN) A microfluidic arrangement including a fluid channel configured to receive a first fluid from a first inlet and a second fluid from a second inlet, and a mixer connected to the fluid channel, the mixer including a mixer channel configured to receive a volume of the first fluid and a volume of the second fluid from the fluid channel, the mixer channel defining a mixer capacity, wherein the mixer is (i) configured to mix the volume of the first fluid and the volume of the second fluid in order to provide a mixture of the first fluid and the second fluid when the combined volume of the first fluid and the second fluid is less than the mixer capacity, and (ii) further configured to mix the volume of the first fluid and the volume of the second fluid in order to provide a mixture of the first fluid and the second fluid when the combined volume of the first fluid and the second fluid is equal to the mixer capacity.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un agencement microfluidique, comprenant un canal pour fluide configuré pour recevoir un premier fluide provenant d'un premier orifice d'entrée et un second fluide provenant d'un second orifice d'entrée, et un mélangeur raccordé au canal pour fluide. Le mélangeur comprend un canal de mélangeur configuré pour recevoir un volume du premier fluide et un volume du second fluide en provenance du canal pour fluide, le canal de mélangeur définissant une capacité du mélangeur. Le mélangeur est : (i) configuré pour mélanger le volume du premier fluide et le volume du second fluide de façon à fournir un mélange du premier fluide et du second fluide lorsque le volume combiné du premier fluide et du second fluide est inférieur à la capacité du mélangeur ; et (ii) en outre configuré pour mélanger le volume du premier fluide et le volume du second fluide de façon à fournir un mélange du premier fluide et du second fluide lorsque le volume combiné du premier fluide et du second fluide est égal à la capacité du mélangeur.
