Tuneable separation in elastomeric microfluidics devices

Author affiliations

Abstract

We describe how the elastomeric properties of PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane) can be utilised to achieve tuneable particle separation in Deterministic Lateral Displacement devices via strain controlled alteration of inter-obstacle distances, a development that opens up new avenues toward more effective separation of particles in microfluidics devices.
