On-chip fabrication to add temperature control to a microfluidic solution exchange system
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2008

We present a concept for the post production modification of commercially available microfluidic devices to incorporate local temperature control, thus allowing for the exact alignment of heating structures with the existing features, e.g. wells, channels or valves, of a system. Specifically, we demonstrate the application of programmable local heating, controlled by computerized PI regulation, to a rapid solution exchanger. Characterisation of the system to show that both uniform temperature distributions and temperature gradients can be established, and to confirm that the solution exchange properties are undisturbed by heating, was achieved using in situ thermometry and amperometry. © The Royal Society of Chemistry.
