Title (EN) MEMBRANE AND METHOD FOR MICROMIXING
(FR) MEMBRANE ET PROCÉDÉ DE MICROMÉLANGE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a membrane and method for microfluidic mixing, the membrane having an upper membrane surface and a lower membrane surface and comprising at least one discontinuity. A composite may be formed by combination of two or more of the membranes. In a preferred embodiment the membrane generates a vortical acoustic streaming field when subjected to acoustic excitations. In one embodiment the method of mixing has efficiency of >80%, preferably >90% in 3 ms at a fluid flow rate of 60 μI/min.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une membrane et un procédé de mélange microfluidique, ladite membrane présentant une surface de membrane supérieure et une surface de membrane inférieure et comprenant au moins une discontinuité. Un composite peut être formé par la combinaison d'au moins deux de ces membranes. Dans un mode de réalisation préféré, la membrane génère un champ de diffusion acoustique tourbillonnaire lorsqu'elle est soumise à des excitations acoustiques. Dans un mode de réalisation, le procédé de mélange présente une efficacité supérieure à 80 %, de préférence supérieure à 90 %, en 3 ms à un débit de fluide de 60 μΙ/min.
