A journey of trains of droplets in droplet-based microfluidic devices.


In this paper, we propose a microfluidic platform toseparate magnetic particles with a constant volumetric flow condition. In order to realize this architecture, three main functions for a droplet manipulation based system are integrated into a single device: synchronization of droplets by matching a location of droplets; lateral electro-coalescence; and magnetic particle manipulation. For an optimized condition of this device, a droplet generation was controlled by varying a droplet size at a fixed flow rate ratio 0.86. The electro-coalescence efficiency and maximum throughput are investigated at a given flow rate condition.
