A microfluidic based device has been developed for the continuous separation of polymer microspheres, taking advantage of the flow characteristics of systems. The chip consists of an asymmetric cavity with variable channel width which enables continuous amplification of the particle separation for different size particles within the laminar flow profile. The process has been examined by varying the sample inlet position, the sample to media flow rate ratio, and the total flow rate. This technique can be applied for manipulating both microscale biological and colloidal particles within microfluidic systems.
