Title (EN) DIGITAL MICROFLUIDICS DEVICES AND METHODS OF USING THEM
(FR) DISPOSITIFS MICROFLUIDIQUES NUMÉRIQUES ET LEURS PROCÉDÉS D'UTILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) Digital microfluidic (DMF) methods and apparatuses (including devices, systems, cartridges, DMF readers, etc.), and in particular DMF apparatuses and methods adapted for large volume. For example, described herein are methods and apparatuses for DMF using an air gap having a width of the gap that may be between 0.3 mm and 3 mm. Also described herein are DMF readers for use with a DMF cartridges, including those adapted for use with large air gap/large volume, although smaller volumes may be used as well.
(FR) Des procédés et des appareils microfluidiques numériques (DMF) (comprenant des dispositifs, des systèmes, des cartouches, des lecteurs DMF, etc.), et en particulier des appareils DMF et des procédés adaptés pour un grand volume. Par exemple, l'invention concerne des procédés et des appareils pour des DMF utilisant un entrefer d'une largeur qui peut être comprise entre 0,3 mm et 3 mm. L'invention concerne également des lecteurs DMF destinés à être utilisés avec des cartouches DMF, y compris celles qui sont conçues pour être utilisées avec un large entrefer ou large volume, bien que des volumes plus petits puissent également être utilisés.
