Rapid prototyping of active microfluidic components based on magnetically modified elastomeric materials

Journal Article

A method for rapid prototyping of fluidic microchannels based on replica molding of elastomers is presented. By combining elastomers with magnetic materials and using electromagnets in the substrate, active valves can be fabricated. This method is simpler and allows miniaturization.
