Okanagan Digital Microfluidics Laboratory at University of British Columbia conducts research on control, fabrication and modeling of Digital Microfluidic biochips. Digital microfluidic devices provide a new technology platform for controlled motion of small fluid volumes. These digital microfluidic devices can provide high speed microdroplet transport on integrated electrode arrays. The generalized nature of these electrode architectures offers versatility, scalability, and reconfigurability for numerous biomedical, chemical, and sensing applications. Furthermore, the incorporated actuation process being based largely upon electrocapillarity between underlying electrodes and conductive liquids, can provide high-throughput processing and rapid droplet transport with the rates up to 250 mm/s.
