Surface acoustic wave (SAW) directed droplet flow in microfluidics for PDMS devices

Author affiliations

Abstract

We direct the motion of droplets in microfluidic channels using a surface acoustic wave device. This method allows individual drops to be directed along separate microchannel paths at high volume flow rates, which is useful for droplet sorting.
