Elastomeric membrane valves in a disc

Author affiliations


We present elastomeric membrane valves integrated into a centrifugal microfluidic platform for precise control of fluid on a disc. The amount of the fluid passing through the valves, which depends on the rotating speed of the disc and the membrane thickness, has been characterized, and could be precisely controlled by tuning the disc motion.
