A miniaturized high-voltage integrated power supply for portable microfluidic applications

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this work a portable microfluidic device with a reusable integrated high voltage power supply is presented, which allows for quick exchange of inexpensive disposable poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) microfluidic chips on a carrier only slightly larger than a microscope slide. The device is powered by an onboard MN21 cell battery (5 mm radius, 30 mm long) and is demonstrated through the rapid and controlled transport of a fluorescent dye through an expansion chamber geometry. Power consumption experiments demonstrate the device's ability to complete over 40 dispense–flushing cycles on a single battery.
