Title: MICROFLUIDIC APPARATUSES
Abstract:
According to an example, a microfluidic apparatus may include a channel, a foyer, in which the foyer is in fluid communication with the channel and in which the channel has a smaller width than the foyer, a sensor to sense a property of a fluid passing through the channel, a nozzle in fluid communication with the foyer, and an actuator positioned in line with the nozzle. The microfluidic apparatus may also include a controller to determine whether the sensed property of the fluid meets a predetermined condition and to perform a predefined action in response to the sensed property of the fluid meeting the predetermined condition.
