Patterning Of Surfaces To Control The Storage, Mobility And Transport Of Liquids For Microfluidic Applications
Hess, Dennis W.
MetadataShow full item record
Systems and methods to pattern surfaces to create regions of variable adhesive force on a superhydrophobic paper surface. By taking advantage of high surface energy sticky islands on a non-sticky superhydrophobic surface, microliter water drops can be registered or confined at specific locations; selected drops can then be transferred to another patterned substrate and the drops mixed and/or allowed to react without the need for pipettes or other fluid transfer tool.
