Flock-based microfluidics

Abstract

Flock-based microfluidics are created by depositing hydrophilic microfibers on an adhesive-coated substrate using an electric field. This enables the fabrication of self-powered microfluidics from one or more different kinds of fibers that form 2D and 3D flowpaths, which can wick 40 microliters of liquid per square centimeter. With this approach, large areas of functional wicking materials can be produced at extremely low cost. Copyright © 2013 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
