Title: PIEZOELECTRIC-DRIVEN DROPLET IMPACT PRINTING WITH AN INTERCHANGEABLE MICROFLUIDIC CARTRIDGE
Abstract:
A droplet generation platform is disclosed that is based on the microfluidic impact printing technology, where low-cost piezoelectric actuators have been utilized as the impact forces. The modular microfluidic cartridge composed of all polymeric material provides a new, simple means for chemical loading and droplet-generation with interchangeability, low cost, non-contamination, and multiplexability.
